No no Tom, "0" boring.
Not getting oil kills a common engine in seconds, getting less than necessary, in days, let me ask you a question:
From what car was that Boxer engine? It maybe or not a design failure.
Was the oil pump OK?
Did the driver saw anything wrong before engine blew up? (I refer to low oil pressure indicator light)
Was Oil in general clean, with adecuate viscosity, or it was black sludge? Was there enough Oil?
Sometimes oil can be almost new but inside engine there is mud you cant see and wont go out in oil changes (caused by very rich mixture, low ring-liner sealing, bad oil quality or selection, low engine breathing and oil overheating in some point because cooling system depositions)
Remember the oil is the blood of your engine, is what the doc analises first when you have a disease!
