Default Trans leaking

Just took my car out for the first test drive and found that the trans has a tiny leak.. it's a new trans and motor. Any ideas on where to start looking? There's a small drip on the pan that covers the converter and looks like it is dripping into there possibly.

Looks like RMS to me.

Either accept leaky LT1 life, or attempt to fix. I think either the trans or the motor will have to come out to replace it if its the RMS

The angle of the picture make it look like they are on the headers but they are not I actually zipped tied them earlier. Also it's a brand new engine it better not be leaking lol. I'll figure it out.

Make sure it's not running down from the top, like the back of the intake or oil pressure switch.

Good idea I already checked that. As far as I could tell it wasn't leaking (no oil on my fingers when reaching back there).

you can tell if its rms if its leaking on the inside and/or outside of the rms. the engine does not need to come out.
