    I am experiencing a small oil leak and can't locate it, best guess is it is originating somewhere on the exhaust side of the head towards the front of the engine. Any input would be appreciated.

    What have you done to locate the leak? I would clean the engine and then drive for a bit then look for the leak. Oil has a way of migrating and where you see it isn't were the leak actually is. Six cylinder Z's aren't prone to oil leaks, but they can get a cam cover leak around the spark plugs. Easy way to check this out is to pull the plastic cover. I hope you find it.
