2 more IMS failures in my area today


Recommended Posts

Talking to my mechanic today he told me that he has 2 more IMS failures to work on. Both are on 911s (2001, 1999, one has 66000 and the other mid 40000) the one engine is destroyed and the other may be able to be rebuilt at his shop. It did not totally let go, just making a God Aweful racket. I recieved my L&N Engineering Retro kit today and my 2000 911 with 45000 miles will be going into my mechanics shop on Monday for the installation as well as a new RMS, Throw Out Bearing, Pilot Bearing, and if necessary Pressure Plate and Clutch. My 911 is running great but i just am not willing to take a chance. Better to spend alittle (little as in Porsche $$$) then spend Big bucks later. This makes a total of 5 in my area within the last month with IMS Failures.

Sorry to hear the IMS rearing its head again. I think I've gotten over my paranoia about it happening and still wish I had more data points to correlate. I've seen others who go with the retrofit as well and wonder if you don't mind me asking, "how much does the retrofit cost?" Just curious in general what it runs vs. getting a new engine, etc. Another thing I've been keeping in mind is an engine conversion such as the one from this company: http://www.renegadehybrids.com/. I was going to look into this further so I at least have some baseline information on costs. Until then, I'll continue driving the heck out of it and having fun!!!

Depending on which IMS Kit you need it will cost you $519 for the Single Row or $595 for the Dual Row kit. I am having the IMS Kit,RMS (Rear Main Seal, free from L&N Engineering with purchase of IMS Kit), Throw Out Bearing, Pilot Bearing, Pressure Plate, Clutch installed for just over $1600. I have seen reports on forums and from people i know who have had the IMS failure replace their engines anywhere from $13000 to $22000.
