Just an update.
The leak dripping on the passenger side of the engine bay was tracked to the
Thermostat housing gasket failure.
While there was some threads on how to replace the thermostat; I think most of them were on an Elise NA.
Most replaced thermostat was performed with the clam on thru the wheel liner wit the alternator off.
With the super charger on it was not as easy as other had mentioned. With the super charger on the way, I can not even visually see the housing so removing it was done thru feel. While removing the housing was not the issue, putting it back together was concerning if i had to install it by feel as I did not want to run the risk if pinching the gasket a the old gasket did. So I decided to remove the clam and be more confident in the gasket replacement.
With the clam off, the housing was still not visible but provided more room to replace the thermostat and gasket.
Now that i've done it with all the space, next time around will be Clam on.
