It seems dry all the way around the valve cover gasket. I've carefully cleaned this all up and the oil is slowly oozing out around the intake manifold gasket. It's not much volume but it is definitely leaking. This is a turbo so I think the boost pressure is helping it work its way out. I know from past experience you do get a fair amount of oil vapor in from the EGR which normally burns up. After a while the inside of the crossover pipe and intake get pretty coated so this is what I think is leaking out.
