Response to no luck -- still smoking
if you're gonna pull it aprt i'd try some UV dye in the oil first, then when you get it apart maybe the dye will give some indication how the oil is getting to the tailpipes. with a UV light hopefully you'll be able to see whether there's oil on the backs of Intake valves or the Exhaust valves, in the intake runners or maybe even the manifold...
warm @ idle and decell are when you'll the highest intake manifold vacuum, i'd also suspect the intake tract to be the source but how much blow-by does this engine have?
do you have an operating PCV system, breathers in both covers?
there'll be phantoms, there'll be fires on the road... and the white man dancing
