Default Vtec spool valve leak

Okay so i was replacing the gaskets for the vtec solenoid/spool vavle/whatever you want to call it and i snapped one of the three top bolts putting it back on. Now i ran the car for about 10 min and didnt notice any leakage, i already ordered a new/used assembly since it was 15 bucks and i already tried eveything to get it out, besides drilling the bolt out. I just want to know if you guys think i should be ok to drive it in the meantime. Should be here on 28th.

Does the solenoid assembly currently leak oil like cutting an artery would leak blood?

Don't take car to "racetrack" until you replace the broken VTEC solenoid bolts.
