Do you have an oil cooler or is there a fitting near there that you could be mistaking for the leak? Possibly you just need to change it and clean the surface well before reinstalling.

Jimmy,

Any new developments on the car? Had time to inspect for the source of the oil leak yet?

If you can swing it, save up for a Wolf ECU or something like it. Well worth the money and effort to install and tune it.

oil coming out of the filter can mean blowby which would mean broken pistons/piston rings...

The leak can also be contributed to too much crankcase pressure. Are you properly venting the pressure? When I was into V8s, we used to put a one way check valve in the exaust to suck out the crankcase pressure. Very illegal and effective.

look for the rubber filter gasket, it can get stuck on the mating surface and cause the filter to not seal right.
