Oil just barely showing on very very tip of dipstick, unless that's from the tube and it's not showing at all. Has (slightly reduced) pressure.

I took a peek through Smike's old 5.3 throttle body. Oil every where. I still recommend to inspect/eliminate PCV. A catch can probably will well to do that.

Kinda that's the point? Aggressive driving/severe service (aka high rpm romping) aggravate LS's infamous oil consumption issue.

Did you look at your old 5.3's throttle body yet? I clearly saw oil running down into intake from passenger side valve cover. Don't even need to open the throttle blade.

Quick search on pirate 4x4 say to cap passenger side valve cover port and throttle body port and for the PCV there's few options I found;
1) install a catch can and vent to atmosphere & cap the PCV port on top of the intake manifold
2) install filter on driver side PCV port to vent the crankcase and cap the PCV port on top of the intake manifold
3) install a catch can/oil separator between valve cover port and PCV port on top of the intake manifold.

I will do option 1, to keep oil from running into intake for in case a roll over should occur.

I’m not likely to swap a motor before next use, could be interesting to experiment.

I might need a 4qt catch can though. Maybe less without vacuum on it though.

And you say 4K for a running truck is unreasonable...
