Default Cam sensors at rear of Heads Leaking oil

Recently purchased 03 STI with JDM 205 w/avcs delete 81k miles. I purchased knowing that there was a minor oil leak issue at the rear camshaft sensors at the back of the heads, it pools up a bit and burns, smoking and making me and my car look terrible haha. I have now become completely stumped on how to resolve the issue. I purchased the IAG camsensor delete plugs and removed the sensors and installed the plugs, still have the issue(not as bad). I was told by IAG that they were made for the USDM not the JDM and the diameter of the hole is slightly larger than that of the USDM. Anyways. the oil spits out, its not pouring by any means. I am just sick of it and I have googled hours to no avail. I was hoping someone else has ran into this issue and could offer some feedback or a resolution. I would love this fixed so i can finally tune it and have some real fun. Thanks in advance.

You can check McMaster Carr and see if you can upsize the o-ring and rtv the bejeezus out of the plug. Make sure all sealing surfaces are free of oil before applying your silicone.
