Oil has 29xx miles on it. I just ported my intake. Its plastic and i used a dremel to delete some walls that where in the intake manifold. I got about 95% of the plastic shavings out. Im jw if the remaining shavings would call for a oil change. This is on my 1.4t cruze. I ported the intake and did a pcv reroute. “To fix a common pcv issue”. Oil is penn euro 0w40 and i was gonna put in penn plat d1g2 5w30

You took a dremel to the intake while it was still on the engine?

If you removed it before doing the work, and you cleaned it THOROUGHLY before you put it back on, then you're probably okay to wait.

None of the shavings found their way into the oil, trust me!

Run that oil to 8,000-9,000 easily
