Maybe I should change my oil now, but I have experienced better running

Techron (the commercial stuff bought from Pep Boys) into the gas.

I was experiencing some hesitation upon full throttle acceleration with
the Lehmann chip and 2.5 bar PT, but after running two bottles of
Techron into a half tank of 93 octane gas, the car runs much smoother.

full throttle, slow down, etc.). Guy in the Volvo behind me thought I was

While this is not recommended, this has been my experience.

What is the downside of not changing your oil immediately after this kind

so if you're in Westchester, it's not too far.
