Re: It is in the combustion chamber...
I was just thinking that it may actually be beneficial to suck a small amount of oil into the intake manifold. The '93-'95 RX-7 twin turbos used to mix oil with the fuel in the injectors at high RPM / WOT. I believe the purpose was to improve lubrication or cooling or something like that. But the point is, they burned oil not due to weak seals, but because the engineers designed oil mix into the fuel injection when the engine was in "balls to the wall" mode.
Maybe that's just a rotary thing, or maybe there could be some benefit on a regular 4-stroke V-8 like the Ford engine.
