I don't think you can seal the system for this loss, and consequently can't hold a static test pressure.
Unless someone has experience to the contrary.

Don't have experience to the contrary but it makes no sense Porsche or any engine builder would go the the trouble to assure all air go through a filter to keep dirt, dust, sand etc. out of the engine but allow dirt, dust, sand etc. to be inhaled through a vent to atmosphere.
Does the screw seal when turned all the way in? Add an o-ring seal?
Is this leak the only remaining leak? If so, it's got to be miniscule and the clock gage should be very close to reading true system pressure.
