if its not rocker cover gasket it may be front crank oil seal, mine did this, try taking your left hand side cam cover off and if theres oil in there it tends to drip onto left hand side of exhaust

Re: slight smoke coming from turbo, expansion bottle area

thanks guys found out its a split drive shaft boot spewing out grease etc onto the exhaust, im sure it wasnt like that when the subaru garage done the headgasket, think they might have damged it when doing engine etc, but how can i be sure?
