2002 engine failure


Vehicle Information: Year: 2002; Engine (type, size, modifications): stock, no modifications; Total Mileage: 6400;

After being layed up for 6 months, I took the car out of storage and drove it about 200 miles when the engine died, left lots of oil on the ground after being parked and during tow. The dealer service manger says no problem, Porsche will replace the engine with a factory built engine.(?) Get the car back (dealer needs 3 wk to swap and check out) and after about 100 mi it starts missing during acceleration from a standing start. If any amount of power is being applied between 1000 and 2000 rpm this happens. I believe there is also a miss at higher speeds. The dealer indicates that I shouldn't be running the car at these kind of rpms. Do we have a problem?
