As I recall, ozone is unstable, it takes an input of energy to keep it together. UV light is just right for this task. That's why we find it in the upper atmosphere.
That being said, thermodynamics tells us that when ozone splits it would release some energy.
By contributing energy to keep ozone together, less of the UV energy reaches us, keeping most of us skin cancer-free
I believe the ozone would rapidly decay before it reached the combustion chamber, leaving diatomic oxygen to do its normal job.
I agree with MotoVincere's analysis.
