    Update: Alright those bolts weren't the source of the leak. Turns out it was the oil pressure sensor switch with the rubber boot on it. Changed that out and finally there are no more leaks!

    Hey guys check out the pic below. I finally used some dye and discovered what appeared to be a minor oil leak out of those two hex bolts. They are located just behind the oil filter housing and below the oil pressure switch.

    This pic is taken last night. I have since removed them and cleaned them out and reinstalled with permatex ultra copper. Hopefully this is the fix for my oil leak.

    But anybody know what the heck is the point of those two hex bolt holes?
    (There were no rubber o rings behind them.)
