    when i hit boost in my car which is a 420a running maybe 5 to 8 psi on stock everything now keep in mind this is only when i drive it there appears to be oil leaking from the valve cover on the drivers side but i just replaced the gasket with a Fel-pro yesterday. well i've been searching all afternoon and i can't find nothing except something on the breather thats on the valve cover so after i ran the car i pulled off the hose on it and theres no oil comming from there so im stumped and ideas?

    Even with a new gasket on the valve cover its been known to still leak...

    Try putting a layer of RTV sealant inbetween so make sure you have a good seal :thumb: (Recommended sealant : "Right Stuff" from Peramtex)

    Other than that, can you take a picture of the oil leak so it will be easier to identify...

    sure i hit the gasket with ultra copper before i put it on and on the valve cover there looks to be 2 holes where screws would go there threaded but no screws and it looks like oil is coming from one of those holes. but i have to wait for my g/f to here so i can use her camera

    Check for your valve cover for cracks.
