oil leak

Ok so I bought a 2005 sti in august with a clean record on carfax. Come to find out after a week my car is leaking oil. I replaced the cylinder head and gasket and still leaks. Heavy smoke. My buddy helped me try to reboot a loose bolt but broke 3 of them in it at the very end. Any one have any idea what I can do to prevent this

Oil leaking from where? Is the smoke from your engine bay? left or right side? And what 3 bolts?

Need way more info. I mean you did the head gaskets yourself? Did you make sure to put the crankcase lines all back on?
