    e30 turbo-- new to me

    Hi guys
    I just put a turbo on my 1990 325is. When I was under the car putting on my exhaust sytem I noticed the back of the block looked a little wet with oil. No drips. I couldn't tell quite where it was coming from but I assumed seeping where the block and the head mate up. Any way I got everything hooked up and I've been driving the car with the turbo for about two days now at about 6# boost and I now have a spot approx 4-6 inches in diameter when parking overnight. I still can't quite tell where it's coming from but I assume blown headgasket. I'd like to run the car at 8-10 #'s boost. Is the stock head gasket the way to go or is there a better but not bank breaking way to do this. One person at a parts house I talked to suggested a copper head gasket but didn't know about torque settings or if I should use the BMW stretch bolts. I'd rather not do this twice. Any suggestions appreciated.
