It all depends on how many miles your motor has on it and what kind of miles those are. Check the plugs. A compression check would be a good idea.
A high milage motor will likely see low (~140 ish on stock compression), but even compression between cylinders. New heads or reworked heads on a high milage motor will lead to oil burning as oil leaks past the rings. Don't know if this is your case or not.
Another possibility is that the intake manifold isn't sealed properly to the head and sucks oil up from the galley.
