oil leak

ok so before i even ask my question.. i did use the search bar.. if this is somewhere else my bad i didnt see it... now i did an oil change about a month ago...ive always changed my oil on all my cars never had a problem.. im no super mechanic but i know the basics...after i changed my oil i noticed i was having a leak.. it looks like its coming from the oil filter canester thingy..like 2 days after the oil change i took it into the dealer to have a stage 2 clutch put in.. i just got it back a couple days ago and noticed its still leaking.. anyone have any clues as to what they think it is.. i have noticed there is oil pooling around the intake mani... right where the filter is.. i have taken the filter off and put it back on thinking maybe i didnt tighten it right or not enough.. the problems still there.. any help would be greatly appreciated.. also i just installed a cai i got for my birthday.. its a cheap one of ebay.. has anyone used them before is it worth keeping on there and ive noticed it seems to be a little touchier (thr***le wise) is normal for a cai? sometimes it feels like its not getting enough air or maybe 2 much air and sputters a little.. any feedback would be greatly appreciated.. thanks..

did you put the big orange o ring onto the top? A GM tech told me you should replace that cap ever 3 to 4 times you change the oil.

same place the old one was, if you look above the threads you should see where it shold go. my best thing to tell you is go get another oil filter and replace both.
