so another funky little tid bit, i was stopped waiting to pick up a friend and saw a tiny bit of smoke coming out from the hood.

i popped the hood and looked it was coming from some oil on the headers...

not a whole lot of oil but enough to produce visible smoke...

i'm thinking the header gasket went bad and needs to be replaced:idea2

anyone have any ideas?

More like the rocker cover gasket.

I'm going to tell you right now it's your valve cover gasket. I have the same problem right now and I know for a fact I need to replace it. Every now and then I'll get a nice wiff of some oil burning and it sucks/smells really bad. Valve cover gaskets are fairly cheap though and easy to replace. At $50 for the gasket and an hour of time, maybe an hour and half if you're thorough and clean everything, it's a fairly easy fix.
