Question about 2001 Subaru Legacy
Juat replaced head gaskets, putting back together and set the timing arrording to timing marks, and on #2 and #4 intake and exhaust valves are opening on compression stroke
Only worry about what is happenng on no1 piston. with the piston on top dead center and the valves in the overlap position ie a small movement either way shows inlet opening or closing with the the exhaust operating the opposite direction means that you have timed the motor correctly. all the rest will fall into line

Well, since you had the heads off, the valve timing comes to mind...
Do you have compression now?
If not - rings,
If compression good, then did late spark burn exhaust valves and you are now chasing your real problem?

Subarus tend to block their radiators. Often there is only 10% or less flow. The radiator needs to be taken out and have a radiator shop strip and rod out the core tubes or fit a new or recored radiator.
