will be tommorow, i know it isnt good and i dont plan on leaving it like that. I will be getting dyno'd in 2 weeks so ill be changing it again just before the tune. just wondering what it will do to the engine? As i havnt checked my oil for a while and dont know how long its been in there.

im not trying to be a d**k but its most probably a leaky injector

it will dilute the oil and then the oil will be diluted and be "useless" ive had it happen on a skyline it threw a turbo out due to it
