I'm almost always on my mobile and so I dont get to see signatures. I didnt even think to look at the forum section for that info.

Regardless, I would look at your valve cover seal. In a 4 cyl car, the leak at the valve cover can often drip down or weep down the head and land on the exhaust manifold causing that same oil burn smell.
