So,The current news is the garage says it's lifters. So, they want to change the lifters on the engine, 2 or 3k for the job. He says they are sticking. Wierd it only happens at almost exactly 6250rpm. He tried switching DMEs and it still happened. Next battle is my extended warranty, RepairMaster. Dealer says it's hard to prove this is the problem so the warranty guys may not want to pay. Wish Porsche offered extended warranties rather than third parties. Gotta wait for an inspector to show up, be convinced the lifters are the problem and then they'll pay but he says this stuff is never easy.
