Cool Fixing Leaks at 130K

I've had the Panel Conversion in the shop several times since I bought her.
The last time, they replaced the intake gasket, and dead battery.

So, I took her back last week after seeing some leaking on the driveway.
When I sell the Challenger, the Panel PT will in the garage; parked over a in-ground storm shelter. So, I really want her to fairly clean when I do.

After reading a few old threads on leaks, I suggested they take a close look at the breather tube and the Oil lines to the turbo.
Once recently, I stepped on the turbo pretty hard to teach a pickup truck a lesson merging into one lane before merging onto the interstate.
And, I smelled burning oil for 5-10 minutes after that.

So...yup! The turbo oil lines were leaking. I told them to look up the upgraded lines, and be sure to wrap the lines in heat shield where the line lay along the engine, to prevent any coking of the oil in the line.

And, apparently the pressed metal tranny pan was a little warped and needed a bend or two, along with new sealant.
Hopefully that will clear up the "spotting" for the garage.
