Spoolfool's new Drip-Lip, oil leak catch thingy.

I installed mine. The engine is girdled and it did have to be trimmed a little. Clears TA headers and crossover fine. It catches about 80% of the oil but I have some dripping off the starter. At least it’s not dripping on the crossover pipe anymore. The oil is originating either from the rear main seal, back of the pan gasket or back of the girdle. Everything above is bone dry. I’m using PIG Mat.
So for an update. I have a VERY BAD leak from my rear main seal. If I use paper towels I have to change it every 60 miles or so or it's saturated and starts to drip. If I use pig mat it goes about twice the distance. I'll be pulling the engine and replacing the seal this winter.

I have nothing on the crossover and no smell as long as I change my child's diaper frquently! :p I also have a spare that I won from Mike at the 3 bolt turbo challenge at RC's in May if anyone is interested in purchasing at a good price.

Just a Update:

Installed the Drip lip this morning, my car has a stock crossover and I had too loosen the bolts to get it in position. Then I realized it needed to be trimmed to clear my RJC engine brace but other then that no issues! I'll report back if it catches my oil drip and crossover smell.

Believe nothing you hear and half of what you see.
Mine went on a few weeks ago. Slipped right in with TA race headers. very minor adjustment on one hole. I have driven it several times and figured it would take a while for the existing oil to burn off the crossover pipe. The smell is noticeably less and the oil spot on the floor is drying up. As far as I am concerned it was money well spent!
