LOL what the?
Umm, dude, if you did loose significant oil volume like you said you did, pressure would drop, and you'd probably spin a bearing or something first before doing anything major in the top end. On a nearly unrelated note, valves bend usually due to extremely high revving, aka moneyshifting, abuse, etc.
