Thanks Macster, for a detailed synopsis. Much appreciated.

BTW, regarding the T6 reformulation. The latest spec sheet I have from the Shell website shows that it still has the Porsche API: SJ or SH specification?

I uploaded engine noise video to YouTube. My first time. Hope it works.

I would love to ask this owner, on the noise.

You Can Own this Porsche 996 Turbo With an Absurd 590,000 Miles
Roll the dice with this 996 Turbo that's been to the moon and back.
Coming across a high-mileage car for sale can be a blessing and a curse for potential buyers. On one hand, more miles equals more wear and greater chance of the car breaking. But on the other hand, if the mileage is high enough, it could mean vital wear items have been replaced or otherwise remedied. In the case of this 590,000-mile Porsche 996 Turbo, we think it's the latter.

For sale on Craigslist in Minneapolis with an asking price of $17,995, this 2002 911 Turbo doesn't seem too out of the ordinary at first. The paint is clear and shines evenly, the interior is in good enough condition, and the wheels look free of curb rash. It's only when you get to the picture of the gauge cluster above do you see the numbers on the digital odometer: 590,000 miles on the dot.

According to the short listing description, the Tiptronic-equipped 996 has been fitted with a FabSpeed exhaust and upgraded factory turbochargers. It even claims the car makes 545-horsepower and 545 lb.-ft. of torque thanks to the changes, despite the mileage.

Porsche Club of America featured the half-million mile Turbo back in June of 2015 when it had 575,000 miles on the clock, and noted it went through no less than 124 tires during its lifetime—15 sets of front summers, 22 sets of rear summers, and 11 sets of front winters, and 14 sets of rear winters. That's, uh, a lot of tires.

The article also mentions the fuel pump, water pump, a cooling fan, the battery (twice), xenon headlamps, the alternator, and the wing deployer mechanism as being replaced under the original owner's tenure. Frequent 800-mile weekend trips from Decorah, Iowa to places like Denver, Minneapolis, and Chicago are the culprit behind the impressive mileage.

If you're not into a car that's seen more distance than Apollo 13, this 125,000-mile silver example might be more your thing. Either way, you can't go wrong with that Mezger engine.
