Thumbs up I finally found the leak...no I need opinions

After spending hours cleaning and laying under the car I found the pesky leak. Its leaking from the lower corner of the Filter housing assy right where it touchs the lower balance shaft housing. You can see the drip form then run down behind the part of the balance shaft housing that has the power steering mount.
Before I pull the filter housing, is there anyway that bad relief valve seals could cause a leak to seap here??
Here is a picture of an N/A housing ( I couldnt get a picture of mine) showing where the leak is.
Thanks

It's the flat gasket that runs around the outside of the housing. You will have seal the entire assembly when you pull it.

When was the last time you changed your timing and balance belts and/or cam chain and tensioner?

Requires an alignment tool for the oil pressure relief valve bore. Think with the 951 there are some exhaust plumbing issues to clear before you can get a good shot at the oil cooler.
