MILES:190K

DESCRIBE ISSUE.... I've been looking for this leak for quite some time. Finally found a steady drip. See attached pic, where drip is in the area circled. The white thing on the right is the K&N oil filter.
Any specific ideas what it leaking? It look like I may have to unbolt the A/C compressor and/or remove the exhaust manifold to get to the leak. Any ideas-from-experience
to let me know where to look first?
Thanks,
Doc

Annnnnnnd, I think I figured it out. Loosened the AC Compressor and removed the plate/housing that the oil filter screws onto. Looks like that gasket was bad. Bought a new one (luckily the local Advance Auto had the FelPro) and installed it. Hopefully that will fix my leak. I'll post a note later after I drive it a while.
Thanks!
