Can someone kindly advise me what may be causing a  small oil leak on my 1988 944 Turbo S?

 

When the car sits for a while and I start it up, it smokes like crazy for a few minutes and eventually burns off. Oil seems to be leaking on Y pipe.  I have changed the rear cam gasket to no avail. I have also checked the balance shaft covers but I don’t see any leaks but can’t be sure. 

 

I have been under the car for an hour while the car was running and not running but can’t see the leak, but sure enough, after a few days the pipe stars to get wet with oil.  Any suggestions?
