Losing about a half quart every 1700 miles. White smoke on start up when given gas. No power/boost loss at all. Is this normal due to oil cooled turbo?

No. However the rate of oil loss you report is normal.

Having a normal oil loss rate doesn't mean you don't have a leak or are not burning oil; it simply means the loss rate is acceptable even if you had no problems at all.

Do a compression test. Also what oil are you using? Sometimes switching to a slightly thicker oil will reduce consumption.

I don't think I'm losing compression from a warn ring or seal of amy kind because even after 5000 miles the oil is still amber, which I am very happy with ;) I guess I was just checking with everyone if a half quart every 1700-2000 miles is normal with the 2.0L's. Donkey I live in Chicago what do you run weight wise and is going up to 10W going to bring any issues I should consider?
