Thanks for the all the input..  I have checked, tightened and 
or replaced all these aforementioned items.  Engine 
compartment is totally clean.  I have changed to red g12
about a month ago and there is no residue anywhere...
which presumably the red would leave.  Leak developed well before that, first time at a track event, which would seem
to speak to stretche head bolts.
My oil filler cap DID have a gunky residue (coolant?) which
I cleaned last week.  Didnt really think about it being coolant though.
So I believe I'll get the ECS $150 head gasket kit but will 
leave the job to my mechanic who has done each and every 
repair mission perfectly. 
I think I'll use Raceware studs as ya know I love P parts and
I think they are the same used by APR.  I also think they're 
$180 to $200 last I looked.  
stay tuned..
