The thing is, it is actually amazing how much oil is in the cam boxes at speed. The scavenge in the motor does a good job as it does remove the excess. But it can't take the oil from the boxes fast enough at speed since the oil, at that point is at the rear. Since the boxes have excessive oil at speed and there is obviously a problem there since there is a overbundant amount of silicone, that needs to addressed right away. If leaking at that point where the silicone is, it would spit or spray oil on the wastegate since it is almost underneath that particular junction. What sucks is the cam sprocket and tensioner ect. on the lft side must be disassembled to get to the seal. But I would address it ASAP before anything else.
