Jon,

Try adding the following: how many miles, how long you've had it, how long you've noticed this, etc. Did Ford test anything when they said it's junk? Also, are you sure there's no oil leak? I mean, looking the engine over top to bottom you don't see anything? Four quarts is a lot. You'd only burn 7 or 8 if you put it in the fuel tank!

you got some bad rings. Time for a rebuild it sounds like.
Send a sample of oil to Blackstone labs and see what comes back.

I would think power would be lower...noticaby but maybe not, Never had to deal with that. It could be one or two bad rings. I have heard of a way to check for blowby without any special equiptment but I'm not sure what the procedure is exactly. Maybe a Tech will chime in on that.
You could have ford do a compression test.
Teast the oil too, if you are burning oil, you will also have a higher fuel content in the oil.
