Towed it over to the mechanic and will do compression test tomorrow but its burning oil and he thinks I may not be getting compression on one or two cylinders the way it sounds when cranking.

Tryinging to weigh my options right now. Continue trouble shooting the block or just weigh options of dropping in another V7 or V9? Thoughts suggestions would be appreciated.
2.1 all the way!!
