wow.....must have sounded like a locomotive when it was running!
did you do a compression test on replacement motor before you bought it?
was the smoke blue, or white? or change from blue to white while running.
personally would not take the time to remove engine unless it sounded like a bad crank and/or without running a compression test.
crank it over with spark plugs removed to see if it is indeed getting pressurized oil coming out of the plug holes.
run a cold compression test on all cylinders.
it is pressurized oil at least the compression test will tell you if it is leaking past the rings or not. that much oil, seems to much to be leaking past valve seals or valve. but anything is possible.
if it will start up again, if it were me, keep it running to warm motor up a tad. remove intake tube to throttle body and block throttle open to get a more accurate comp reading.
usually a bad head gasket starts coolant leaking into your oil or vice versa) first. is there white foam or thin watery stuff on your dipstick? or oil in your antifreeze?
good luck... keep us posted.
