That dreaded IMS Bearing… A small component which can lead to BIG problems!
The IMS, intermediate shaft, bearing for Porsche engines went through multiple design revisions from 1999 to 2006, including both single- and dual-row bearing designs, without ever adequately resolving the ball bearing issue.
Eventually, the M96 and M97 engines were replaced by the “9A1″ engine, the first 911-bound engine to completely dispense with the intermediate shaft system altogether in favor of a system that drives the camshafts directly off the crankshaft.
What can you do if you own a 911 with an M96 or M97 engine to prevent IMS bearing failure?
Luckily, there are a few options for IMS Bearing replacements. The choice is either a LN Engineering Retrofit Kit or a IMS Bearing Solution which includes modifying the oil filter housing to provide a direct oil feed for the IMS Bearing.
At KCC we have all of the necessary special tools and expertise to install either the retrofit upgrade or the “IMS Solution”.
Our recommendation for 911 or boxster owners is to have the IMS bearing upgrade performed on your car. We don’t advise rushing out to immediately have it done before putting even one more mile on your engine, necessarily, but it’s probably best to go ahead and do it at the same time another procedure is done, like a clutch replacement, rear main seal, or any other job where there is a lot of overlapping labor involved that you can take advantage of to save money.
Planning in this way means you can still enjoy your Porsche without the anticipation of imminent engine failure with every squeeze of the throttle.
In addition to your own peace of mind, it will preserve the resale value of the car when the time comes to sell. Most savvy prospective buyers won’t even consider purchasing a car that doesn’t have an IMS upgrade in its service history, and if they do, you can and should expect to have to significantly lower the asking price.
