I spoke to my detailer and he mentioned he gave the engine compartment a once over with some light degreaser and low pressure water? This was Saturday morning. I figure if something was wet it would have dried on that 30 mile drive before the ride of shame?
Water beneath the distributor cap would not dry out in 30 minutes (many threads about this in the 911 forum). This can cause a misfire/rough running, but might not be the case for you given you say it runs fine when cool . . .
