This kind of stuff is how 15k "evaporates" - it happens very easily on a turbocharged engine. Not so easily on your NA 911.
You just gave me nightmares.

Maybe I will only have a leakdown done.

Those pieces of rings...sends chills down my spine

You had zero symptoms, surely oil was getting by and consuming, no?
