Glad to hear that!

Yet more empirical real world evidence that the overrev hysteria is blown way out of proportion when looking at TTs.

The DME results are a shocker to me.... Sent some oil samples out and will do a compression check ...
  • - Range 4 – 1368 @ 1323.400 operating hours
  • - Range 5 – 189 @ 1298.300 operating hours
  • - Range 6 – 14 @ 1288.500 operating hours
I would get a Durametric tool, or go to the dealer to have them verify the over rev datas. If it is true and you truly didn't cause it, then obviously there is a glitch within the DME. Escalating to Porsche might help find the cause.

If a 997 turbo ever lifts its wheel or gets any air because of bump in the road surface under full throttle acceleration the DME will likely register a range 5 or range 6. Quite unfair in some repects, but not harmful to the motor. However, you will never be able to explain this to a fan boy.

First time I ever heard of this. Where did you get this information from ?

Hmm, interesting point. So basically you’re saying that if the wheels are spinning freely while in gear, the fuel cutoff at redline won’t prevent the rpms from rising over redline? Or to use a different scenario, let’s say the car was on rollers and you could spin the wheels in gear as fast as you wanted. In theory, you could wind the rpms to 11k without the computer preventing that from happening.
