Default Engine oil loss when high Rev to 8000rpm

Anyway to prevent engine oil from loss when high Rev to 8000rpm boost a 26psi? around 480whp on a 2.5 bulid with forged piston n rod ?

Use a catch can. And vacuum it out of the IC and intake manifold....you might not have filled it up enough to see the smoking yet.....but you will eventually.

A few things that will help:
sump with windage tray
highflow/high-pressure oil pump
high-quality oil

Set up a GOOD catch can with a drainback and you should cut the consumption down.

I have been told that not rev'ing to 8000 rpm at 26 psi helped as well.

Sounds like you are also likely to have an "engine bearing loss" at those RPMs.

You will always have some oil consumption but tell us how much you are loosing. Is it 1 quart every 3k miles or are we talking 1 quart every track session?

One quart or less every 3k miles of normal driving is acceptable. In racing conditions our engines typically will loose 1/4 of a quart or less (pushed into catch can) at 30 psi for 15-20 minutes of WOT road racing with rpms up to 8200 (when using our Competition Catch Can). This amount of loss would be considered normal given the engine build and use.

I would say you could get away way with 1/2 quart per track session but using our Competition Catch Can would cut that in half but if you are using more then really it's a motor build issue due to excessive blow by.
