Not a good idea; use cylinder head lubricant if you like (Red X) but not normal oil as it will foul the plugs. If you have put a small amount in by accident it shouldn't hurt though.

PS many cylinder head lubricants fuel additives are castor oil based if you must play.

Injectors aren't real fond of oil, and you will have a nice carbon build up in the cylinders.

Not a real good idea.

It will reduce your Cat life aswell, and make the car blow smoke.
