small oil leak..98 boxster (AT)

Cant for the life of me find out the cause of this leak...Does anyone know how I can tell if its an RMS leak? I can see oil resting on the top of my engine and it looks like it drips down via some small hoses....Car smokes when its real hot...I want to say its from the oil hitting my exhaust....I read on one site that my oil leak may be from an oil return tube...Cant find a picture of what and were the oil return tube is located..any help?

IMS leaks down the bottom between the engine/tranny.

Sounds like what you have is a goin' south AOS and 'J' tube. Use the Search function... no shortage of reading.
