oil leak on a SVT

I have an oil leak and not bad were it makes a puddle but it leaks on to my exhaust and smells.
im not sure what its called but ill give you guys the location and hope someone knows what it is so i can buy one and replace it.

its this baffle/container type thing right under my exhaust header on the block.. looks like 3 bolts hold it on.

thanks for moving this,

the pcv valve is that little fitting on top towards the air filter correct?
the issue is that the whole unit is rotted. anyone know what thats called?
and is it the same as the regular ford focus models with the 2.0L?

It will be tight, but you should be able to pull it out without removing the exhaust header. The SVT has a little more clearance in that area, if it was a regular Zetec then would have a large CAT right in your way. But I have never pulled it of the motor with the header on.
