Rockerbox or h/g, underneath exhaust.
At least those are the most likely.
Is it using a lot of oil?

Try checking the back of the head, it might be running down there and across to the manifold or down the bellhousing.....

its definately not brake fluid leaking out of the master cylinder onto the cat??

im not sure where the breather tube is for the auto (im assuming its auto?) but could it be coming out of that??

dont know how it can get frm the pressure sender to the exhaust...

It will be either of a few things

Rear of rocker cover
Rear of Head Gasket
Rear Main seal
Auto gearbox pump

the bottom 3 are expensive fixes.

Windage can make oil get there.. As you are driving...Pluss the oil drops down from wind to rearward parts. Leaves you thinking that its where its coming from..But it can be further forward from where it appears to be leaking....The "frustrating" part is rear seals can be wet or very slight leak [which is o/k] and something else can make it "seem" worse..apita..

if the cats under the tranny then u would be leaking tranny fluid from either wher the filler tube connects to the tranny due to a bad seal, or from a crack in the line.

where is the cat placed!

I have had similar problems with a couple of falcon autos. What can happen is the internals of the rear of the box floggs out , you can throw as many seals at it as you want it wont fix it, the g/box guys do a mod (fit a bearing i think) into the rear section where the driveshaft enters then a new seal . All up $150 - 170 nz ,
