i did mine twice and it was still leaking at the back a bit. the Valve cover itself was warped. new cover fixed it. if i were you id take it off and check it with a straight edge....mine you could see with a naked eye. idk how i missed it the 1st time. and idk if you VCG is your only reason for oil loss. have you done your CCV?

Edit: Also did you use RTV on the halfmoons? And did you try tightening a little more and seeing if that does the trick?
