  1. We are always here to help.. Jud can get you some of our Flat 6 coils out tomorrow ?
  2. So you purchased an LN bearing and installed it, you then experienced an engine failure and extracted the LN bearing from the failed engine, then fitted it to another engine?
  3. Then the car arrives here with the engine disassembled in the trunk. We call that a "trunk job". If it wasn't for all the support that people demand the IMS Solution would have been on the market years ago and my book would already be in people's tool boxes with dirty finger prints all over the pages. Instead, its just now getting finished.
  4. Perhaps you'd like to spend your personal time dealing with DIY install issues? The latest situation where the IMSR bearing was described as "failing during installation" was the final straw in the decision to only sell these units to shops, because the bearing did not fail and the installer didn't know enough about the bearing, or the kit to realize this. Onlookers do not know this, all they see is "IMS" and "failure" and then the snowball starts. Dharn55, I remember taking time from my day to help you, even though your car was never sent to me. I did not have your components in hand and th
  5. No, the system is designed to have the oil serviced at 5K miles and no more. Ensure the shop does not over tighten the MCD sensor and all will be well. Its for the guys that complained because they wanted an alarm so loud that it would deafen them when it went off, scare the pants off them and cause them to lose control of the car. The alarm is loud enough, but not extreme enough to cause the driver to become alarmed. Warranty is 1 year. Life is unknown, its a solid state system, nothing to fail other than a switch, but the switch is a factory OEM Porsche unit. The device mo
  6. Tony Callas of Callas Rennsport is local to you. He has some units in stock and is very familiar with the system. He and I instruct M96 engine classes together, so he is super familiar with all our products, to include the IMSG. That said, we charge two hours here to install the system. The average is a 4 hour charge for most Porsche shops, and if it takes longer than that dispute the charges. One dealership charged 8 hours, which is ridiculous. Tony is your man in that area.
  7. This week I am instructing another of my M96 101 engine rebuild schools.. During a break in class on Thursday I passed the IMS Guardian sensor around the classroom and no one knew what it was or how it could possibly work. When I used two sentences to explain it their eyes lit up and jaws dropped. Partly due to how simple it is and also because of how logical it is. Then came the congratulations.. All the patents are filed and a provisional has been issued, trademarks are registered as of last week. Due to the USPTO it will take the better oart of the next year to receive the full patent.
  8. The IMS Guardian has been completely described in the 2011 volume of Excellence Magazine in the Tech Forum. Most of you will have this publication in the coming week. Think what you want about the "sky is falling", but come answer my phones for a week and you will see what we experience on a daily basis.
  9. Pop the belt off and see if it goes away.. If so its a sub-system. If not, its internal. I can't tell much from the video, but I'd bet sub-system.
  10. The best part is you are less than 20 miles from our facility.. When you arrive here you'll see license plates from all over the country, at the present that even includes cars from California and Oregon! Give us a call to set up a time for a tour, the end of next week would be great and I hope this beautiful weather holds up!
  11. i have a huge problem with my '00 996. i found oil in my coolant and coolant in my oil. please call me at 210-771-6420 Jesse.

  12. Absolutely.. We have been fielding calls all day today. The IM portion of the site is marginbal at best and constantly gives us issues, I apologize for the inconvenience. This is spring, our busiest time of year and this year I decided to stop retail sales while we concentrated on meeting deadlines for track events.. This time of year I go 14 weekends in a row with a commitment to some sort of event. We have more business than we can satisfy, which is a very good thing with this economy.. All that on top of adding another manufacturing facility to our property has been too much along wit
  13. More than likely if the fit was tight enough to have caused the extraction issues the new bearing would have been impossible to fit. One thousandth of an inch separates success from failure in this game. Glad to hear you finally removed the old bearing, your difficulty has to be the worst to date... Heck thats not bad considering this time last year the general consensus was this bearing was impossible to replace.
  14. Based on the position that your bearing is in as pictured I'd say the bearing puller was not centered over the IMS correctly during the procedure. This created an issue where the bearing contacted the puller during extraction, creating a situation where the bearing could not move and something had to break. This would also explain why the Kukko internal extractor also broke. With that pic I can see that the bearing has already been extracted past the point where the internal snap ring is compromised, meaning that there should be nothing else locking the bearing in place, except maybe cont
