Default Ms6 Cylinder 1 & 4 wet

i have a 2007 speed6 with 83k miles .. she is as stock as it gets, purchased thru my dealer as a trade in and was owned by a lady in her 50's i have all service records. nothing major was ever done to the car..

my issue is one day i wanted to put some oem plugs in it and as i pulled them out 1 by 1 i obvisoulsy looked at what i could thru the spark plug hole i noticed 1 and 4 was wet.. strange? checked my oil and for sure was low.. 3 days prior i did 5.5 qts of rotella 5w40.. so i topped oil back off and put the new plugs in, car ran fine an i continued to check my oil. i would say im going thru .5-1 qt a week..

compression test 1,2,3,4
185,180,180,185

leak down test 90psi all 4 held very well

car was hot when test were performed..

turbo has minimal to no play

no records that pcv valve was ever replaced..

before i start throwing money at this or that i would like some tips or idea as to the issue

My money's on the turbo burining the oil, but you cant see smoke cause hidden by the cats. I guess that doesnt explain the wet in 1 and 4, but if you have good compression all should be ok, no?

no oil on the cold side.. very small amount of oil inside the tube that goes from tmic to throttle body.. but no oil inside the intercooler either

would i have to pull the air/fuel ratio sensor to check the hot side of the turbo
