K900 Tau 5L V8 Questions

I have some questions regarding the K900, I am getting extremely close to purchasing a new(er) vehicle and I want a big GT sedan. The price and luxury of the K900 is hard to pass up, though information on this car seems to be far and few between. I recently read an older article complaining about the 5L GDI Tau V8 in the 2012 Genesis Rspec something about is has abhorrent oil consumption(from blow-by), but I couldn't find any other supporting evidence or stories. Is this still a problem, and if so how bad is it current? Also are there any other negatives or massive positives I should know before buying?

Next I'd also like to ask about performance options, it seems there is a fair lack of information surrounding the ECU and near zero support for prefabbed, intake/exhaust kits, any recommendations?

my eventual goal is to have a 500hp lazy daily.
