Default Oil leak!

This leak is driving me nuts! I think i have tried to fix it about 3 times and i drive it bring it back home look underneath and its coming out slowly again. The place where its leaking from is you know where the outlet on the passenger side of the engine is right below the oil filter(dont know why mazda made it for) and it has the black rubber cap over it. Well since the motor got redone everything was taken off so i had to put it back on after. So first time took the car out out leaked. So i switched from the shitty mazda spring clamp to a hose/worm clamp...leaked, checked it at work again today moved the clamp re-tightened it as much as it could go. Got home sweet no leak, look under 2 seconds later oil everywhere! I think its when i go into boost it starts pissing out. Has anyone else ever had this problem before? Or know how to fix it, i was thinking that the rubber is almost 20 years old and go to mazda get a new rubber end and put the new one on see if it will stop. Or is there any other ideas out there? Thanks, Mike
