This car doesn't have a valve cover gasket per se, it has a cam carrier sealed to the cylinder head, and they rarely leak. I can almost guarantee you the leak is coming from the turbo return line. They leak all the time, and it's a fairly easy diagnosis and repair for a tech when the car is up on a hoist. Parts are inexpensive too, ~$20.
