OM603 Blown Head Gasket\ 1 Quart Oil @200 mi

Has any one ever done a succesful Wet\Dry comp test (i.e. 90% spec) on a OM603 and discovered that it still had ovaled cylinders? Meaning can it be loosing a quart of oil every 200 miles do to ovalized cylinders but still have verifyably good compression?
