My EVO is 2008 EVO X GSR
Only add K&N intake system and Accessport Stage 1 tuning!

I found there is a little oil leak at the back of engine gasket,
close to turbo side!!
Could anyone help me take look of it?!
Is that a problem?!
Thank you for the help!!:bowlol:

Valve cover... I have an '08 and replaced my valve cover 3 times, not one leak.
I have only ever cleaned my engine bay 2 or 3 times in 3 years and I have NEVER had grime/oil/grease or anything anywhere around my valve covers. Come to think of it, I have never had it on any car I have owned except for the one time I had one with a leaking gasket.

OP, clean under your hood and then see if it comes back, if it comes back you have a minor leak. Re-torque your valve cover, it only takes a few minutes.
