Is there any blown engine in 997 MY06 ?


Recommended Posts

A soloporsche fellow and me are trying to have more information about engine failures

He helped me to do a home custom made IMS bearing support. (It's published in 996 forum)

So we wanted to know if any of you know about someone who suffered a 997 MY06 IMS engine failure, and if there's any 997 reman engine which suffered an IMS bearing failure

I read that Porsche upgraded the IMS in the early months of 2005, updating the IMS tube with an enlarge diameter single row bearing and a 14 mm bearing support/stud.

I don't know if there is any engine like this which suffered a failure, or the issue was fixed.

Could you help me please?

Thanks in advance

I have not heard of any but a fellow member here (who is also a Porsche mechanic) says he has. Although the 06 upgrades made the IMS failure less likely I guess it didn't eliminate it altogether. That is why I have an extended warranty on my 06 Carrera.... Just in case...rolleyes.gif

My mechanics nor my local dealership have never had an 06 engine failure.. For whatever that's worth...

Bite your TONGUE! :o I've got an '04 build 997S 3.8, and I understand that if one wants to replace its single-row IMS bearing, the whole motor has to be taken apart. I'm therefore taking preventative measures by driving the HECK out of it. It's got 44000+ miles on the odo, and so far (touch wood), nothing's exploded.

You can do it without open the engine.

your IMS bearing is reference 6204 and what you mean is that 997 S produced after Spring 05 have the enlarged and reinforced bearing/support/stud
