Cycles needed to satisfy the monitors?

Using an Actron CP9125:
When I plug in the Actron CP9125 to check my CEL I get the following codes:
P0410, P1411 and P0430.... these I know and understand.

I also get Inspection / Monitor status of: Misfire, fuel, comp, etc. and a Ready status of A/C Evap etc.

Per the Actron book, the Monitors Incomplete and Ready Monitors are read from the car’s computer and the Incomplete indicates that the car’s system has not run a sufficient number of “cycles” to flip over to a “Complete” status.

Does anyone know how many cycles/miles/hours need to be run by the car in order to “Complete” a monitor status in the Porsche computer? I’ m looking for the exact number or an explanation, not just someone’s guess.

My Porsche mechanic drives a Saturn.

Completing OBDII monitors is not a question of "how many drive cycles", it's a question of how you drive it to make the monitors run. There is a lot of 993-specific advice in this thread:

It sounds like the Boxster OBDII manual will tell you exactly how to drive the car to get the monitors to run. I'd look at that if I were in your situation.
