Where is the oil leaking from, front or rear?
The cylinder head gasket cannot be the cause of that, unless you have something trapped between the gasket layers. Oil cannot go into the cylinders via the gasket because this means you have no compression due to leakas and the engine is not going to run smoothly.
Reconfirm the leak. It should be external, most likely valve cover gasket, distributor or V-tec solenoid valve assy (if equipped) if from end of engine. Front of engine leakage means the camshaft seals.
