Losing oil

I went through 2-1/2 qts of oil in 2500 miles since my last oil change. The truck is running better than it ever has. I have no smoke, cold or warmed up. I get about a quarter sized drop of oil from the trans inspection cover a day. I pulled the intake boot next to the turbo and it is fairly well drenched in oil. My turbo wheel is pitted but the wheel itself has no movement, it spins nice, I can still hear it spin for a bit after I shut the engine down. I have no codes. I have no blow-by as checked with the oil fill cap put upside down on the hole.

Where the heck is the oil going? Possible that it is going out through the CCV? Could I have lost some of the filter media from the doghouse and also pitted my wheel? You can see the oil in the boot and below the wheel is still pretty clean.
