Impreza GC8 Tech help please? GC8 2.5rs leaking!!

Ok heres my prob.... i hit some ice about 2 weeks ago, and went up and one one of those yellow curb things in the middle of the road, Well thought nothing of it, car still ran like new. Then all hell broke loose, car started leakin coolant. Hmmm, well i havent had any overheating, nor coolant in the oil. So 2 good things there. So i decided to get under the car and check these things out. Turns out, the exhaust is bent really bad. There is only about 3/4 of an inch for the air to pass through. Now the car doesnt run worst sense this happen. Runs like the day i first got it.
The leak isnt all that bad, it only drips about every 30seconds... it leaks from the back of the block, on the very bottom.
If anyone can help, please PM me ASAP!!
heres some pictures of what i got going on!!

Thw dent in the exhaust is outlined right here.

Take it to the shop before it cost $$$$. I had a small leak, couldn't find it, water pump failed =$1500 w/tune-up but I'm waiting to see if the heads are warped.

Good luck.

I had a leak that I could'nt find. I took the overflow tank hose off the radiator cap stem and shot no more than 20psi of air in there. Needless to say, the leak showed up real quick. My lower radiator log has a hole in it and now I will be replacing it.
