Unless the shop was familiar with the Subaru head gasket issues and which parts and procedures to follow they more than likely did it wrong. Using the new OEM head gaskets and having the proper machine work done is the only way to go. I've seen and read about guys running aftermarket crap gaskets like Fel Pro and they just don't last. They might work ok on other cars just not ours. Take your car to a Subaru specific shop and have them test for hydrocarbons in the coolant. Having them in the system is a for sure head gasket leak again.
