1998 SL2
Default oil like residue from exhaust

when i got my 98 sl2 it had a clogged cat so i cut it off and welded it straight pipe with a muffler now theres a oil like residue on my back bumper by the exhaust exit that looks like very thin oil, does anyone have any idea what this could be? i also have to redo my valve cover gasket with gasket maker because its leaking out the sides a little, i was thinking maybe oil is getting on the exhaust and making its way down the pipe somehow.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

That cam cover leak will end up on the back of the car, has nothing to do with the exhaust. Any oil in the exhaust is unburned oil that has made it out of the combustion chamber, that shows up as oil consumption on the dipstick..
