my question is where the world does over a quart of oil go in less than 1200 miles with no trace????????
Out the tailpipe.

Not true, I have had cars that burned oil at about that rate and they only smoked on startup.
Oil doesn't typically get into the coolant in the Phase I when the gaskets fail. The coolant looks dirty because of combustion byproducts.

Worn valve guides can do this. Cause a sudden, significant increase in oil consumption with virtually no other symptoms.
Ok, you posted at the same time as I. Were the valves worked on during the head gasket work?

I just went out and crawled under my car in my dress clothes and looked there is some oil residue at the T section of the frame there.. I can't tell where it coming from.. but it looks like its right under the tranny at the back of the engine.. Im going to get my chiltons out and see what is in that area..
