1 you must use Vm gaskets not the aftermarket crap ones, 2 you must clean out the breather system or they will carry on leaking.
3 replace the O ring on the oil cap / extension as these leak too.

Too much sealant can also cause a re leak, make sure you only put sealant where the gasket needs it ie sharp turns on the head and also on the first Cam cover edges too

Hi
I too have the same problem, have replaced gaskets on both sides about four times in two months, cleaned breather system including breather pipes big time taking them completly of and washing them out in solution including the emission box but still a sight weep of oil on too the coolant pipe driver side.
Any ideas guys.:mmmm
