That's what I was afraid of. Here's the plan for now. Please let me know if there is a better way to do.

1. Test MAF values in live data in my code reader (if possible).
2. Clean MAF and reset/retest.
3. Assuming I still have a problem, remove intake tube, cover the throttle body and smoke the rest of the intake system via one of the connections behind the throttle.
4. Fix any leaks and clean throttle body.
5. Pray to the Porsche gods for mercy!

There is a little bit of oily build up at the connection between the oil filler accordion and the part that attaches to the engine. no drips on the engine. Could the be my culprit?
