ok i found the cause of the fire....the coolant line on the turbo was dripping down and mixing in with an oil leak that i have no idea where is coming from. i fixed the coolant leak and now i cant find the oil leak i thought it was coming from the oil cooler so i removed the oil filter and the oil cooler to make sure that i put the o ring gasket between the oil cooler and block.. the o ring was there but just to be safe i put a new one in then i started it up and it was still dripping oil on the passenger side exhaust manifold i looked everywhere that i could see and still couldnt find any leaks. my only guess would be that the valve cover is leaking slightly but there is oil on almost everything by the manifold so its so hard to tell.i guess im going to check the valve cover in the am and see what happens...its funny how i can build an engine entirely by myself and cant find a damn oil leak lol
