    I can see the oil filters being a big mess lol
    so long as you keep it above the low mark on the dip stick. also too much is not good( guy came in my car's lost power and barley idles... drained 11 L from a 5 L sump.... pistons were very close to, if not hitting the oil)
    if its worth doin its worth over doin
