    Looks like you need to do your valve cover gaskets too. May be leaking oil from there onto exhaust.

    Leaky valve covers can be dealt with in time. My personal first order of business would be that coil wire being so close to the manifold. Looks like it's been doing some melty type shit sms being as that carries all of your spark energy, it's not currently doing you any favors
