Could be leaking from other places aside from headgasket. If there is a burnt oil smell, it's likely leaking from a place onto a hot surface (Extractors?) hence the burning smell. Perhaps it's leaking from turbo?

Best to get pro subie workshop to have a look. You can try BMS, BKS, Foo Bros..

Good luck.
