Your using a quart of oil every 1-2K miles? Don't you think that might be a little excessive?

No, like I've said before, it's oily water. I haven't had it analyzed, but I would guess easily 95% water. It's never low on oil or coolant, so I can only speculate that it is normal, maybe a by-product of combustion.

Wherever it comes from, I'm glad it's not going into the A/F mixture and on the valves.

I promise I won't post these forever. I am trying to determine the effectiveness of these coolers vs the copper tubing I had installed before.

So far it seems about the same.
