What you think ? should i worry

i finally got round in stripping my 93 wrx down to find the oil leak that occurred with my new mods. just got the turbo off and found loads of oil around the area, so got some pictures to show. but i dont know whats this gasket called im sure its not the head gasket section. is it the rocker cover gasket ? the oil is super clean and the coolant also with no drops in levels.

here pictures to show as i am not mechanically skilled on a impreza engine

(just edited post as pictures not showing)

is this a diy job? cheers

Re: What you think ? should i worry

been tryin to work out from the pics what has happened,head gasket shouldn't in theory chuck out that much oil,only real way to check head gasket is obviously look for oil in the water,may be a few more pics would help..

thinking about it,looks like the rocker gasket and gone..

Re: What you think ? should i worry

yeah oil and water are spot on. cleaner than ever. the gasket that you can see is located directly in line where the turbo sits above.

the head gasket is closer into the engine block basically under the throttle body area isnt it?

in order from the head gasket working your way to the outside of engine what gaskets are used?

head gasket > rocker cover gasket > (whats the end one called where the spark plugs sit in) , its the middle one thats gone if you get me

hi mate, on the top of the rocker covers theres a breather pipe in the middle, this isnt split or the gasket leaking is it?
