SVT Compression Test Results : Blue Smoke at high RPM

Hello All!

I would need some of you experts here to give me your advice on this..

I bought a 2002 SVT with 122k Miles and I recently changed the oil and realised there was about 1 liter left!! My friends following me while I was accelerating noticed that there was indeed blue smoke and smell when I was accelerating.

Following this, I decided to do an engine compression test to see if I had a leak somewhere.

Starting with the dry test (No Oil in the chambers) i got these results (Starting from Timing belt)

1 : 125
2 : 120
3 : 120
4 : 130

Then when ahead with some oil in the chambers to see if there could be a leak through the pistons and got this

1 : 140
2 : 150
3 : 135
4 : 145

I really don't know how to interpret those results!! I heard the svt should be somewhere in the 80s because of the vct!
It also looks like every cylinder is leaking..weird..!

The spark plugs are very interesting...very white for 1 & 2 and going slowly back to normal towards 4..see below : 1 Left--->4 Right

Anybody ever came with similar results? I don't know where to start to figure out what the problem is!

Thank you for your help in advance!!
