ok got it off, here are the pics
Is it oil or fuel that is soaked in? If it's oil, I've got to stick with my first post that it's the valve covers leaking. It looks like the valve cover gaskets are crooked where the bolts are, plus you mentioned you cut the covers which is going to compromise the seal.
...I say valve covers also , when the revs go up so does the crank pressure to squeeze/seep out some oil, try another set of valve covers, just my .02, DC
and smells like gas, and wouldnt have some oil in the runners?
was the engine running ok? if it's fuel it could possibly be a warped intake that was causing the fuel to leak, but that looks pretty bad and if it was, the engine likely was running pretty poorly.
I'd get some new valve covers, and put on fel-pro intake gaskets. I bet that will solve the problem.
Looks to me like you have oil wicking through your intake gasket. That would also explain the oil in the intake ports. You have cast aluminum valve covers right? Unless the rails are bent they not likely to leak. Try better quality intake gasket, maybe smear a thin film of Right Stuff on the bottom edge that would be in contact with oil when you reinstall them. Also make sure your PCV is working.
Looks like the intake bolts may have been torqued on the ends first. (Instead of the middle first.)
Lay a straight edge across the sealing surface of the intake to be sure it's flat.
