Pizza dude. By any chance, did you use standard fel pro intake gaskets?
The standard fel pro`s on a aluminum intake don`t work real well as they won`t crush and seal due to the lack of the intakes weight.
The standard gaskets are for cast iron intakes as there weight and bolt tightness will "crush" the gasket and create the seal. So, remove the carb and look into the intake plenum. If you see oil everywhere you have a intake gasket leak. If not then the problem is elsewhere. Give us more detail on how your engine uses oil and if you see any clouds of smoke and the color of it coming from the exhaust as well as the type of oil you used. Unless the PCV system is set up uncorrectly you can`t point the finger at it and blame it for excessive oil use. Give us the answers I`ve asked and I`ll tell you in total how the PCV system works and how it has to be restricted to work correctly.
