Too funny!

It is amazing to me how some people tend to treat anything that comes out of Porsche or some piece of machinery as some sort of sacred monolith. Just for your sense of getting the facts straight, I rebuilt the engine. I have rebuilt many engines before of all types and countries of origin. The "thermal stress" you refer to occurred at the Port of Entry from Canada at Port Huron. Some months after 9/11 all points of entry to the U.S. became nightmares for people coming back into the country. The highway backed up for several miles with no where to go, jackasses were driving on the breakdown lanes risking people's safety and welfare. If you think I'm going to pull over into situation and risk my safety or the safety of others, forget it. I didn't peg the oil temp gauge, but I knew that the oil temp was beyond normal operating parameters.

Geez......If you don't know the facts, don't offer some ridiculous theories based on your predjudices.
