If anyone is still following - dealer said normal consumption is about 1qt every 3000 miles, so 1.5qts burned in 5k miles is about normal. Told me to keep changing at 5k and to monitor dipstick and top off if necessary but if it gets any lower than that i’d bring it in.

guess i need to stop flooring it haha
Lol, they've changed it with this engine, which is good. That makes my old 3.8 JK engine a wobbling drunken sailor on a Saturday night on the French Riviera! (Almost 1 quart per 1k miles.)

Higher volumetric flow rates actually reduce the vacuum built up in the intake.
