Oil Leak

got a oil leak on my Subaru Impreza WRX import (1993 model) , it only leaks when engine is running but takes a while to start first. what started this leak was doing oil change and overfilled it by alot and i mean half way up the dip stick, as it was late at night and its been started and short drive down road until i checked in morning and dropped the oil to the correct level, now its leaking really badly, it dumps the entire oil onto the floor it you give it time, but only leaks when engine is started and given time for oil to circulate then it starts to drip out then slowly get worse

i cant actually see the oil leak but i can see oil on engine block near the turbo area , i can say it isnt the rocker cover gasket , any help very much appricated
