Yep, the oil issues could result from messing up the tolerances/lining at the pistons and the cylinder walls. You could also develop higher than intended slack in the transmission, which could result in power transmission inefficiencies. Then there might also be issues around the tension in the belts (they might need to be retensioned before going all out). However you look at it, gunning it off the line is not a good idea.
