The right side B&B heat exchanger has been bottomed out hard on something like a curb.
You can see the scrapes and bends all along the bottom of it. That force bent the heat exchanger box upward a little and that is why you see a gap and small tear around it and the collector. Looks like it was rewelded there.

The combustion darkened oil dripping down on the heat exchangers is probably oil seepage from between the heads and cylinders. Often from running stock dilivar head studs that were not torqued properly and running boost at 1bar or higher so the heads are lifting..

Also see lighter color engine oil dripping from the right side cam chain box and it's dripping on the header. That may be the gasket or one of the oring seals in the chaincase.
I would be surpised if the ends of some of the rocker shafts are not leaking oil too.
