Try doing a "wet" compression test first, and compare to the "dry" readings. That should give an indication as to how much is getting by the rings?

Definitely install the correct baffles, and inspect/replace the PCV valve (and filter, if equipped)

How about the "china wall" seal at the front of the intake?
Fords also use an o-ring to seal the distributor ... right?

Any oil leaks from the front of the engine will get blown all over the place by the fan.
