ea82 turbo efi motor now runs great  BUT It appears to be leaking oil from the front centre of the oil pan ,Have tried 3 times ,used bluemax loctite (1), the rightstuff permatex (2) and last time two gaskets with j3 earo gasket goo . Only ever leaks from the one spot every time which is where the block  split is joined . Any suggestions  sounds like a replacement motor is required ?
