How much smoke are you getting? When warmed up mine smokes some out the dipstick tube and oil fill. It just doesnt have enough pressure to blow the oil cap off. I even tried the paper towel method and didnt move it. You should try the oil cap test, where you flip it over and see if it bounces around from pressure coming out. Not to be confused with vibrating off the cover.

95 f250 powerstroke, zf5 with solid flywheel conversion, 3 inch downpipe to four inch diamond eye stainless steel exhaust, riffraff 6637 intake, pyro and boost gauges, and more to come

Did you check blow-by before switching over to 5W? That should not have caused much of a difference at all.
