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.

119,950 miles, another drain. Only 1,100 miles.
9 oz. turbo-side, and 17 oz. intake-side.

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.

120,774 miles, another drain. Only 824 miles, about 2/3 of my normal goal.
2 oz. turbo-side, and 8 oz. intake-side. Less than half the normal collection. I had an issue with oil consumption, so I've been babying it lately.

Looks like I forgot to post my last drain. Life sure gets busy sometimes, doesn't it?

~122,000 miles, another drain.
4 oz. turbo-side, and 8 oz. intake-side.

Today, 123,296 miles, another drain, same results.
4 oz. turbo-side, and 8 oz. intake-side.
