at 16k you still have a ways to go on break-in
The best thing you can do for breaking in the engine is loading it up on a dyno, short of that, hooking to a trailer and dragging it through some rolling hills (you want to get a decent and steady load on it). It is going to take many more miles until the rings seat fully (and yes using rotella doesnt help!) and during that time you can expect excess blowby and oil consumption. if after 30k+ the symptoms have not began to decrease, it may be time to start diagnosis.
Worst thing you can ever do for it (especially on a fresh engine) is to idle it excessively and -foot around!
