Oil Leak

okay, so I have a small oil leak, and it didn't start until after I replaced the water pump. I have no idea where it's leaking from, yet. I intend to find out soon though. It's definitely coming from the front of the engine, and you can see that it will drip and then blow backwards onto the sway bar and such pieces. Last night at a cruise night I noticed that I know have a mark on my hood (the underside) and I believe its that where ever the oil is dripping from, its going onto the belt and the belt is throwing it onto my hood. Any ideas of where it could be leaking from?

Timing cover, valve covers, heads. There are a lot of places. Best bet is to clean everything off and then let it run and look for the leak.

I had a bad leak from the intake manifold. I learned from this forum that that is a notorious place for an LT1 to leak.
