I plan on doing the UIM/LIM here soon anyway. I was just seeing if you thought I might need to replace anything else since I'll be in there.

Ill try to take a picture but it seems to be more towards the driver side of the block and not the middle or the passenger side.

Ok here you can see it pooling up on the back part of the block.

I put a rag in there and dried it up then took a paper towel to the rage to see what the color was and not good news it is coolant. So I'm thinking its uim or lim. What do you guys think?

First, you don't have a UIM, you have a supercharger. It'* hard to tell in that picture, really over exposed. But it could be the LIM gasket.

I can't tell in that picture, but can you tell what color the LIM gasket is? Black is the OEM gaskets and it may have failed again. A light green is the good aluminum gaskets. If you need it done I can do it for a far better price then that.
