I was getting some smoke with a blueish tone but chalked it up to the lack of cats. I installed the turbo sump and changed to Rotella T6 and that took care of most of the smoke..

I spoke with a mechanic and he said its normal for subies to burn about a quart per 650mi based on his experience? could I chalk it up to normal oil consumption or is that wishful thinking.. Everything runs as it should on the car otherwise..

I bought used from a dealership, I did get inspected before and it came back clean. Hopefully I wont have to rebuild my car 2 weeks after purchasing.... Welcome to the tuner life I guess?
The owner probably blew the motor and traded it in or possibly it was auctioned to the dealer. You likely have bought somebody else's problem.

Never, ever buy a used modded car from a dealer.

Best of luck, first thing is to have a good mechanic/tuner take a look at it.
