Burning oil, help!!

Hey everyone, so just recently my aos went bad and I replaced it. I never did clean out my intake with oil residue though. However, it keeps burning oil. Last night, I was 4 QUARTS (I kid you not) low. And it's going down on my oil level from last night (still continuing to smoke too). It'll burn oil at an inconsistent rate... not all the time at a 24/7 rate. What could it be?? Thanks!

Look for leaks underneath ?
Clean the Intake.
Check for cracks in the oil filler tube.Look for oil on top of the crankcase

+1 on the oil filler tube.

I just gave mine a dirty look while changing the coolant tank and it broke in half.
Inexpensive part and easy to change.
It can cause all sorts of goofy symptoms when it starts to develop cracks.

If there is no leak then the AOS is the first supect if you see smoke there....
Is the AOS been replaced with a genuine porsche or a URO ?(U Replace Often).

I sometimes think an AOS should be sold with a digital manometer included in the box.
