Greg_E wants to know Dino or Syn?
Could some of the oil be from a stuck or upside down pcv valve?

Even my 57000 mile beat 88 has closer compression between the cylinders, so something is wrong. Are you certain that the valve preload/lash is set properly?

GHBiker wants to know Dino or Syn?
I finally got to using the new leak tester and the bore camera and we found no leaks and with the camera and scope the cylinders look beautiful and like they are just starting to seat. No high spots, no low spots. there has been no oil usage in 120 miles and the pipes are clearing up :scratch: We are going to go ahead with the remap and dyno and hope for the best.

My deepest appreciation to all who tried to figure out this conundrum with us and offered excellent advice. Thank you very much.
