426 hemi with factory forged slugs would use a quart about the same time as

yours does,your piston have different elements in them to handle thermal

expansion due to heat and are a tough piston to beat ,my 446 Mopar had

forged slugs TRW and it used oil with plasm moly rings with special hone job

they get noisy also like rattle ,but nitrous was no problem for them.I say you

went the wise direction for durability.Does this help
