Default Built engine oil consumption ?

Those with built engines, how is your oil consumption compared to stock ? Has it been constant since the build or changed at all and over what mileage ??

If there's any difference it's minimal. Curious why do you ask?

I`ve been using quite a bit of oil since the build and it doesn`t seem to be improving. 3400 miles on it, would`ve expected everything to be "seated" by now. Didn`t use a drop before even with running the VT460 kit for a year.
