HELP ! will upgrading the oil system make low cylender last longer ?

one cylender is low due to air filter problem. Will upgrading the oil system prolong this cylender, its like 30lbs above the minimum level?
is it worth it or do i need to park the truck.?

How did a cylinder go bad due to an air filter?
And what kind of upgrades do you mean? Higher pressures or what

Leak down of cylinder pressure or injector HPO? Cause there isn't a HPF rail to leak down. JW cause when most ppl say leak down they are referring to HPF
