Haha and I still wear mine all the time. Don't know if I'll wear it again this year or not, a lot of the newer crowd won't understand the joke.

its coming out from the exhaust camshaft seal. its a pain in the A$$ because there is oil all over the passenger side. oil all over my alternator, shocks, rim, drive belt, timing belt etc, and also have a leak in the coolant tank, but i already purchased a new one. I paid a visit to the C-F-M store to pick up my order :) i bough the 65mm throttle body and the stage II Comp Cams, ill have the seal replaced when i install my new camshafts :)

So Jelly, wish I had much bigger cams, not that it would make that much more power though. The cams aren't hard at all to install, what takes the most time is measuring all the bucket clearances . Definitely wait to fix the seal when you put the cams in. Also are you sure it's the intake cam seal? Could be the valve cover leaking onto the alternator too?

Sounds like you and I have the same problem. It's most likely the oil pan leaking, just need to drop it and reseal it.

yeah its the exhaust camshaft seal because the car wasnt leaking oil. It started to leak oil when i changed the timing belt, water pump, and the shitty camshaft seals from Advance Auto Parts. im gonna get OEM ones from Ford

I used Fel-Pro seals on mine if I'm remember right. Can't go wrong with OEM though that's for sure..well most of the time lol
