Oil burning off from the exhaust manifold is normal after a valve cover replacement. Oil often drips from the valve cover as you take it off and lands on the manifold. Once it gets hot, it will burn off. If it doesn't go away after a 20 minute drive, something else is leaking.

That should be connected to the BSD line out of the IBS sensor on the negative cable for the battery.
