I dont think your turbo drip tank has any bearing on this. With the aftermarket headers- do you have the stock oil line or the braided one going to your t-stat from the motor? I have seen issues before with those but not with oil consumption. I dont think you have much to worry about- even on the low end of the dipstick there is still 9 quarts in there. On the newer oil tanks it is standard practice on oil change to put 8 quarts in, start and top off.
Maybe the turbo and its location after the new headers plays a roll- I know its stock location- but it does change a little. Maybe there is a little more pressure on it when there is a higher oil level in the tank/engine. I doubt it has anything to do with your bottom end as that should be about as tight as a dolphin's @$$
