Default Burning Oil/Oil disappearing

Hey guys, just purchased a 2015 WRX with a few mods about 3 weeks ago. Initially when I got the car I noticed blueish smoke coming from exhaust(catless) on startup and on heavy revs. About a week into having the car the low engine oil light came on, so I topped it off, the light came on about a day after putting a full quart in. I put 2 quarts in the next day and completely changed the oil.

Now-- A week later, after switching to Rotella T6, I have noticed significantly less smoke/oil smell. But my low engine oil light just came on again, after around 500-600 miles!! I know burning oil is common but no way my car is supposed to burn a quart every 500 mi???! There are no visible spills and engine bay is cleeeaaan.

Please help, i've purchased a Perrin Turbo Sump Restrictor and am throwing that on hoping to combat the issue atleast a little bit. Am lost in the next step to take.. Compression test? AOS? Catch Can? Part out??

any advice is welcomed, thank you.
