2000 996 C4 -- approx 90k miles. Runs well, IMS Solution (dual row)/clutch/flywheel done at around 60k miles. .5 qt sump installed.
I have the LN IMS toolkit with the cam lock.
Durametric reports a -5.5 and -7.78 so, it looks like the Vario Cam wear pads are in need of replacement. From my research this looks doable without dropping the engine... I am assuming I will have to remove the muffler (and header?). LN suggests replacing the cam to cam chains -- is that a good idea?
any suggestions before I tear it down would be helpful. Thanks!
