Default oil consumption

Okay so after lots of searching and lots of attempts to solve this, i am still eating a quart every 400 miles or so. So far i have replaced my turbo with a bnr s4 v2 and replaced the god damn pcv valve (both of which helped slightly). Im trying to find a compression/leakdown tester and will post results when im able. Im thinking its a valve seal as it only visibly burns oil for a second on startup and on decel. There is no oil buildup on the spark plugs and all four look identical. The constant smoking stopped after the pcv and turbo were replaced. I attached a short video of a cold start. I appreciate any input!

Went big turbo without doing comp test first? That seems risky but hey....racecar. How many miles on the motor?

Man, you've got so much valve train noise, it sounds like a circular saw

Didn't look like a quart every 400 miles. Do you see it out back when you go WOT?

Valvetrain is silent. I hardly ever see smoke. Doing compression and leakdown today.

Valvetrain is pretty much silent, There was a weed whacker running in the background. I hardly ever see smoke, only sometimes on decel.

Compression results are 185 185 185 185. Perfectly even across the board. Still trying to find a leakdown tester

I assume you have looked all over the engine bay for a leak? Valve cover, timing cover, oil pan, turbo..... doesn't really look to me like you are burning that much

I guess my joke was too subtle, about the valve train noise. The weed wacker sounded like a circular saw :-)

maybe you should check your pcv system. valve could be stuck open and blowing oil

EDIT- just reread your post and must of overlooked the pcv part. disregard this.....

I have heard of a similar issue and it ended up being that the oil control rings were getting all gummed up on high mileage motors.

IIRC, it was along the lines of motors after 115 to 125k and up.
