Might be a good idea for more RPM on that race car, A small amount of oil burn might be worth it but then the question becomes one of how much oil goes into the cylinder potentially reducing power. However being as this is a race car engine a few laps around the track should be worth the risk.
Ooops. Wait. This isn't a race car. Being the 4th ring is another oil control ring that is supposed to last the next 50 years, it might be worth putting in.
That is unless your planning on more mission creep in the future.
