Lot of Oil in coolant! Please help!

Hello everyone!
I need help to determine the cause Oil in coolant issue.
I've recently replaced got a head replaced in my saab 9-3 2.0t B207L engine after timing chain slipped and caused valves met the cylinders. Now engine sounds great except there is plenty of oil in the cooling system. So much that it drains oil out of the engine very quickly almost replacing the coolant. It looks like milky in the water tank. The head installed was removed from the running car so I don't suspect the head is cracked. Mechanic said the relevant torque was applied when installing the head. Head gasket is new as the bolts. He has changed the water pump too. Oil cooler was recently replaced. There are no other symptoms such strange exhaust smock or overheating. Neither coolant in the oil. Could you please advice where else should it be looked at before taking the head out again?
Many Thanks for help.
