I doubt you have done any damage, you may find the engine is quieter with the thicker oil. Mobil's specs for the different oils list that the 15w-50 is better for prolonged hard use (track days) and high revving engines (that's our beloved S14).

3000 miles ?, due for an oil change anyway......

Roops.

I've done about 3000 miles with the 0W - 40 in...Hope I haven't done any damage?

Cheers

Just make sure you get the right one. They do two types 0w-40 and 15w-50. You want the latter. (This is known as Mobil 1 Motorsport in the UK)

Roops.
