If you cant see where the water is going , a pressure test will show any external leaks .If still nothing showing , a sniff test (block test ) will tell you if it's the head / gasket at fault again.

as advised get a pressure test done on cooling system and check for leaks,water pumps,coolant rail and thermostat housing are prone to leaking on the k-series engine as well as the obvious head gasket problem
