If you have had cold weather recently it is probably normal. Once it gets cold I see the mustard color in my catch can and on the bottom of my oil fill cap.

You could swap the #4 injector with another cylinder and see if the problem follows it. Then you know if you need to get a new one.

That's a lot of oil. Did you seal the intake rocker bolts? Or maybe check the valve seals.

Who would set up a dyno graph with RPM on the left axis. And time on the bottom. And no torque (yes you can calculate it from RPM and HP but why make me do that?). That graph hurts my head.
