Sorry about late replies guys - ended up in hospital unexpectedly. Out now.
Thanks for Injectors Brian.
I didn't set the idle that low - thats what you end up with on a cold start when the cold start injector keeps spraying fuel in and wont shut down. The 3 bar idle pressure is with the oil temp just above the first white band. My SC runs at this temp all day, but on the 930 it seems to be only partially warm. But I expect it has very good oil pressure. The car is/was not been driven at these revs - still on jack stands. Trying to work out whether I should pull the engine or not. Supposedly just done 500k on top end rebuild - missing gudgeon clip? It seems a number of possibilities that could only be checked by stripping the engine. Is it worth it at this stage?
