Is your breather plumbed into your intake pipe preturbo? Is there a catch can on it. If you answer yes the no then that is where you oil is coming from. Nothing much you can do about that other that make a catch can and make it vta.

So what is it then? I did a compression test, and everyone tells me it's not rings. I did the leakdown test and it blew air out of the valves. No air came out of my dipstick hole or my PCV hole. I understand that the leakdown test doesn't really refer to oil burnoff, but if the valves leak it should be likely that my guides / seals are shot, thus creating oil consumption. Correct me if I'm wrong.
