Replace the rubber pieces and make sure they are perfectly clean when you seat them back in place... also, are you using synthetic oil???

I have a vortech supercharger installed on a 3.2L M engine and i've noticed this one spot where oil keeps seeping out of. The leak is from this one bolt which bolts the valve cover onto the engine. It's the bolt that sits in front of the engine where the vanos is ( the bolt closest to the bumper). So far, sealant's been tried and just recently, the whole valve cover's been replaced.
What the heck is going on!?
Anybody else with the same problem (especially if a supercharger's been installed??)
