Leaking Oil

My E92 has been leaking oil and took it to a local indy shop and after diagnosis the following needed to be replaced:

(1) Oil Filter Housing Gasket
(2) Valve Cover Gasket

I found a helpful DIY on here about the oil filter housing gasket but had no luck finding something for the valve cover gasket?

Any info/tips would help because to change both of these I was quoted $1300!!!! which is ridiculous, so DIY time...unless someone knows of a descent price? Any help is appreciated.

Thanks peeps!!


Side Note: He said my turbo is leaking as well so I'm considering RB turbos, worth it?
