What's the reason behind the 1 qt every 2K miles? Where's it going?

Hell, in my T/A, the oil level never changes, and when I drive that car - it is driven hard

I run Castrol Syntec European (German) formula 0W-30 in that car & change oil/filter every 10k miles with no oil loss. Of course it is a Lingenfelter built/blueprinted LS427 so I'm sure the hand blueprinted tolerances are better then a factory assembled engine...
The reason is beating on it. The more u push it the more oil its gon consume. If I don't push my car I dont see any oil consumption.
