Oil leak on TS engine not from the front or back

Hi gents,

My 1999 GTV 2.0 TS has a leak but not from the front or back where all the camshaft/crank seals are. It's from the exhaust mani side of the engine (front if your using the car as the axis point!)
Just to start the thread off it's not coming from the oil filter

My question is what is there on that side that could be leaking?

Does anyone have a nice diagram with all the places it could be coming from?

Help appreciated

Rocker cover gasket, or the exhaust manifold studs could be leaking if they've been disturbed recently...

Thanks for the tips, I shall check those, please keep them coming. There also seems to be a pipe coming from the oil filter and bolting into the block further up with a big nut, what is this?

Part of the oil/water heat exchanger. It carries water though, not oil.
