Disclosure: I've only skimmed your post...

A modification-induced crankcase ventilation problem?

Just a quick thought...

Hmmm, oil consumption is getting worse each week since april this year... Did a small 
test, perhaps you could comment on this:

Idle for 10 minutes > accelerate fast to 5000 RPM > huge cloud of smoke from the exhaust.

Guys, what does this mean? I'm very worried about this new 1 liter oil per 500 km thing.

Also checked the 'michelin hose' for oil by disconnecting it at the iglo and putting down 
a rubber flex hose all the way down to the turbo intake and pulled it out to see if there 
was some oil on it, which is not. Perhaps not the best way to check but didn't want to 
remove the tray below the bumper and disconnect the hose directly from the turbo intake...

Things that might be of importance: one of the oil cooler lines has been replaced, not 
sure it was exit or supply though. Turbo is a rebuild and valves are readjusted to spec. 
My old exhaust manifold was cracked and is replaced with Dialynx EM, all at the same time 
around december 2006.

Before the EM swap there was a hose present from the iglo to the wastegate, but is now 
removed. The header on the iglo is capped off, the header on the wastegate is not capped. 
To my knowlidge the wastegate is now controlled by turbo pressure.

Another thing that I still don't understand: this is a GV engine, not WR, and the only 
difference is some of the exhaust is routed back and reburned or something like that to 
reduce CO. I've red that the original WR engine used exhaust pressure to control boost 
level, I'm not sure if the original GV uses the same technique and if the 'new' Dialynx 
method controlling boost  without exhaust pressure? (not sure how exactly boost level is 
controlled withe the Dialynx EM), interfers with the original GV method to reduce CO, in 
other words: this is bad or good.

Any comment or insights/thoughts are welcome, thanks.
