Default Coolant leaking by driver side header???

I just put my car back together with LT's and ORY once started it, it was leaking coolant by the driver's side header collector, any idea what might be, its only when the car is running, when I shut it off the leaking goes away???

thats most likely a blown headgasket. gonna have to pull the heads. when you put in the new head gaskets did you remove all the old gasket material? also did you check the heads to see if they were warped?
