Surprised how much slower the slush box is.

The 997 fixed that. The auto was much faster than the manual in the 0-100km/h I recall.

my 04 996 turbo was the tip with a tune and an exhaust

there was basically no difference between Aemel  07 997 tip with tune and mark 12 turbo s with pdk standard once up and running.

I also managed a 4.8 to 100kph while going up hill and not launching it just putting my foot on the pedal (race logic race timer) so if launching it and doing it on a flat road there was a fair bit more left in the car

I think I would prefer it without the turbo whistle.  It sounds a bit to Nissan/Datsun.

I was mistaken, here is the data taken from the original Porsche press release on the 996 Turbo

With power characteristics of a far larger engine, the 2001 911 Turbo (six-speed) can accelerate from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in just 4.2 seconds. On the test track, the Porsche 911 Turbo will sprint from a standstill to 100 mph (160 km/h) in only 9.2 seconds and can achieve a top track speed of 189 mph (305 km/h).

When equipped with the optional five-speed Tiptronic S automatic transmission, the 2001 Porsche 911 Turbo offers still-staggering performance: 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 4.9 seconds; 0-100 mph (0-160 km/h) in 10.6 seconds and a top track speed of 185 mph (298 km/h).
Once one has driven a modern GT its  easy to understand why a auto box is so much quicker then a manual unit both in upchange and downchange
