This usually indicates worn valve seals, when you park enough oil drips onto the pistons and when you start it, the engine burns off the oil first.
I don't think the parts are that much but the labor can add up
Ask if they have the means to replace them without removing the head, this means they use air pressure in the spark plug hole to hold the valve in place while they replace the seals,this way it is a same day repair and should only take a couple of hours

Getting turbo off a 2001 dodge ram 2500 series to replace it

The tuff part is getting to the nuts that clamp the exhaust housing to the exhaust manifold. You may need to modify (heat up and bend) some wrenches to get them all off. Be sure to prime the new turbo before running it.

1986 Dodge 600 K use Syntehtic Oil?

Sounds like you do a good job on oil changes. Just use a good grade oil. I like castrol. I've been scared of valvoline since they bought out quaker state.
