Nope, straight dino all the way.

Reading further what you're saying...thus more oil potenitally going out the 
breather hose and into the intake?  Wouldn't oil going into the intake then 
be burned as well?  Perhaps a quart a thousand isn't a high enough 
concentration to notice a change at the tailpipe.

Maybe I should just start loading the cranckcase with gasoline for even 
bigger boost!  Might help eliminate these small niggling issues.
