I've heard both high boost Turbos and high compression RSRs lift their heads, despite running 993T head studs. What does it sound like? Tap the fins of a cylinder head and they make a characteristic ringing sound. You can hear that over the roar of an RSR exhaust or an open wastegate.

But back to the OP and the idea of having oil leak out from between the head and cylinder -- if that were to happen, you have much bigger problems on your hands because there shouldn't be any oil in your combustion chambers.
