I have 160,000 miles on mine and nowhere near that much smoke or pressure. I do use about the same amount of oil as you though. I think Ford considers anything less than 1 qt every 1000 miles normal usage for the 7.3L. I'm not sure how much blow-by you have to have before it means big problems though, so just because you have more than a few of us doesn't mean your motor is on the verge of blowing up.
