If the car was overheated, chances are that the heads are slightly warped. Did you have them checked by a shop for warpage or just put them back on with new gaskets?
If it was leaking at the Head to block seal he'd have oil in Coolant/ coolant in oil, or Coolant in Cylinders. He says that is not the case. Being as it's a Turbo I'm sad to say it's probably a cracked head in the exhaust passage. Look in my member photos for a pic of the cracks.
Here a link someone else posted with good pics as well.

check the turbo and turbo related lines, now would be a great time to go ahead and replace those anyway, any hose, gasket or o-ring associated with the oil and coolant supply to the turbo.
an easy place to leak is also the intake manifold gasket. were the mating surfaces of the intake manifold and head cleaned and not marred? i've seen very deep grooves in intake manifolds before, though i don't know how they get there. and...did you use Subaru gaskets or aftermarket?
check all of your hoses and clamps, were they replaced or did you reuse the old ones?
a compression test may or may not help. it's very common for compression tests to not tell you anything on a subaru. if the tests are bad, then that's conclusive, but even bad headgaskets can pass a wet and dry test just fine.
