O-ring or gasket issue. Leaning towards O-ring. Buddy did find a company making a heat shield to cover that solenoid as it is directly over exhaust pipe.

that's the passenger side exhaust OCV solenoid i think. much harder to get to. the driver's side exhaust solenoid is maybe next to one... but not above... my memory is failing me tho. i cant find a pic of the under side of 2011's and up. older stis dont seem to have these solenoids.
