Yep, here's how mine looked. I had the engine out tho so it was pretty easy to avoid losing pieces into the cam cover.

Since it coincided with messing with spark plug tubes it's 95% that. I HOPE it's that, for your sake, and not this: https://rennlist.com/forums/996-foru...cam-p1341.html

Unfortunately there could be pieces stuck throughout the engine.
I would drop the sump.
It's easy to do and you'll likely find a bunch of it down there.
I would also check or replace the "swirl pots"(#4 Oil separator) while the sump is off.


I updated my "swirl-pots" to the 997 "oil return lines" when I added my 2qt deep sump.
This might be a good time to upgrade yours as well if you can find the correct part number.
I got mine in the LN 2qt deep sump kit:
