You're going to want to really investigate this one, but in reading the forums it's my understanding that when the you melt the plastic in the oil filter housing, that's about as bad as it can get for the engine. Like I said, do a lot of searching and I hope that I am wrong. One of the main issues is the plastic got into EVERYTHING and has cooled, it'll be impossible to remove the plastic from the engine.
