Neto: congrats on a real beauty! The yellow is my favorite color, the guards red 2. choise. Ended up with the latter, but envy you just a little bit ;) The IMS for 98 and 99 models are indeed double row, and according to official Porsche figures have a failure rate of "far less than 1%", whereas single rows (00-05) have 4-8%, if memory serves me. Upgrading it when its clutch time seems sensible, as mentioned above. Kind Regards
Just FYI I got the book fra Amazon today. Have just turned a few pages, looking forward to dig a little deeper. Kind Regards
Sl3ipner replied to pedefede's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Ok that makes sense :) And thx for the tip, being danish myself.. Remember to keep us postet! Kind regards
Sl3ipner replied to pedefede's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)John Why Pomotec? Just wondering - there should be a number of Porsche garages closer to the danish border. Anyway: best of luck, knock on wood! :) Kind Regards
As Al said. Kind regards
Sl3ipner replied to britdave's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)997 shifter (and a GT3 option) http://www.suncoastparts.com/product/997SCU.html Have read a few lengthy discussions on a big P forum on the BW shifter v the Porsche Factory kit (http://www.suncoastparts.com/product/997SCU.html), consensus were that the latter was to be recommended. A few quid extra yes, but have bought it none the less. No feed back as of yet, will install post Xmas :) Kind Regards
Official Porsche numbers for failed IMS, as quoted in the Harris papers found at the US IMS Settlement: Double row IMS (aka 1998/99, and post 2005 models) "far less than 1%". Single row IMS between 4 and 10%. Far less than 1% may well be in the 1/200-1/400 area, or less. These numbers should be taken in consideration before you panic. Id say, If you own a 1999 car, wait for the clutch. A 2003 car: Just do it. Kind Regards
I was under the impression that *all* 1999 cars was double row IMS, that 2000 was a mix, and 2001-2005 cars had single row IMS. Indeed that should be the reason why the early cars have far less failures on this matter. The bore score issue also favours early cars for quite other reasons :) Kind Regards

Sl3ipner replied to Loren's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Good question (contaminated fuel as mentioned in Pashas article: http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?app=core&module=attach§ion=attach&attach_rel_module=post&attach_id=3224
Sl3ipner replied to violaGT3's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)1999 C2 manual Cab, 100k miles. All fine through extended Porsche check and service. Like lphrg10 above Ive just bought the car, its got virtually no history and allthough matching numbers, its all in the haze whats done and not. I will replace the IMS when the clutch is due, but I dont see that comming any time soon.
