I think I miscommunicated then. The VCG didn't "blow out" but basically there was a bad oil leak coming from the bottom (seen oil all over the exhaust manifold heat sheild) and in the front where the two dips are at the front of the vanos.

The crank case hose can't be kinked because it's plastic.

New gasket is in place with new valve cover for good measure. Also did the vanos seals repair while I was in there. Car runs great! Thanks.
