Are you positive the oil isn't leaking from the front crank shaft seal? That's a more typical leak location that not all that hard to fix.
The other typical oil leak location is from the Oil filter adapter. Usually the block to adapter gasket will leak. The oil runs down the block and around the oil pan gasket. Often is mistaken for a pan gasket leak.
2003 GT Convertible (sold)
2000 GT coupe (Craigslist project. Fixed. Now my DD). Windsor to Romeo swap.
It's on top of the motor like where the head meets the block almost in front of the alternator it's a 96 gt btw. Ill post a pic tonight it's on both sides where it slopes down into the v shape if that makes sense.
