If the previous owner does not have record of it, then it is very difficult to say for certain without removing the transmission.

On a manual car, there is a small cavity on the drivers side transmission bell housing where the flywheel is exposed on the top - but the ability to route a boroscope camera in through that opening and down to where the IMS flange is... sounds pretty unlikely to me. It would probably have to be fiber optic. So in other words, no.

Once you have the transmission out, clutch and flywheel removed it is very easy to see if the flange has been changed to the LN engineering model or not.

Besides that, you might inquire to LN engineering directly if they received an order from a certain individual, whether they would give that info out - or whether the PO actually installed or had it installed is another question.

You could of course also pursue it with the shop that did the installation, if you can find that information.

To my knowledge, Flat Six (Jake Raby) keeps records on the cars they actually do. LN may have records of who they sold the bearings to, but without verification by the shop that actually installed it , anyone can claim to have the upgrade. We get requests for this from time to time and provide a written record of when it was done. And, no, there is no way to verify if a car has one without pulling the gearbox, clutch and flywheel out..................

If the IMS was replaced with an L&N Retro Kit then it should be on record with L&N. They ask that you fill out completely an information sheet that asks for the Engine serial number, model, year of car, etc. That is if the owner filled the sheet out and sent it back to L&N. I made a copy of my L&N sheet along with the sales receipt and service record and placed it in the car's service records. :drive:
