Also check the seal on the plastic snorkel (inlet) on the throttle body. That is a PITA to put back on properly.

Check the alignment on the rubber collars connecting your plenum (throttle body) to the intake manifolds. I bet you have an air leak.

First thing I thought of when I saw the photo is a coolant leak into the oil system. The residue under the oil cap is not normal. Hopefully it is something simple like the Oil Cooler.

No doubt backfires would throw oil onto the air filter if you had oil in the intake/throttle body. I have not seen that since I have never had a Porsche motor backfire.

Tim, You might have other vacuum leaks besides the AOS. If your mechanic did a smoke test he might have found a cracked hose(s). BUT, if you have major suction at the oil fill tube the AOS is bad.
