I only said I'd suspect the seals first because you said you used non-oem parts. I know in some applications the height of the seal is critical...I assume the seals you used were no taller than the one which came out?

Did you have the head magnafluxed while it was off to check for any cracks? Seals, cracks or headgasket...where else could the oil get from the crankcase side to the piston side after R&R of the head? Two out of three of those will require you to pull the head again to fix, so I guess you better hope it was the seals unless you just want to live with it.
