IMS Solution

IMS Solution: The Only Permanent Solution to IMS Bearing Failures for Porsche Boxster, Cayman, and 911 Engines

The IMS bearing in your Porsche Boxster, 996, or early 997 needs to be replaced as part of preventative maintenance to prevent costly engine intermediate shaft bearing failures. The unique approach and patented design of the IMS Solution completely eliminates ball or roller bearings, backdating the intermediate shaft bearing to a plain, oil-pressure fed bearing like what is used in an aircooled Mezger engine and in 911 GT2, 911 GT3 and 911 Turbo® Porsche cars. This makes the IMS Solution the only permanent fix for intermediate shaft bearing issues common to all Porsche Boxster and 911 models.

The IMS Solution was developed by the team that brought you the IMS Retrofit bearing replacement kit- Flat 6 Innovations's Jake Raby and LN Engineering's Charles Navarro. This team is highly regarded as North America's foremost M96 experts. The IMS Solution became the first Patented IMS bearing kit on the market, granted US Patent 8,992,089 B2 on March 31, 2015. The IMS Solution is also protected by US Patent 9,416,697 B2 and US Patent 9,909,469. Their patented IMS bearing solution is the last intermediate shaft bearing your Porsche engine will ever need. Designed for the life of your Porsche engine, IMS Solution kits carry a 5 year limited warranty with no mileage limit and does not have service or replacement intervals like ball or roller bearing IMS bearing upgrades.

What IMS Solution bearing does my Porsche Boxster, 996, or early 997 need?

* 1997-1999 engines are equipped with dual-row bearing. 2000-2001 models can have either single- or dual-row bearing. 2002-2005 engines have a single-row bearing. Early 997 models with 2005 build dates may have the serviceable single row bearing that can be fitted with the 106-08.20 single row IMS Solution.

What IMS Solution bearing do I need for a 997 or 987 Boxster or Cayman?

*M97 engines found in model year 2006 through 2008 Porsche 997 and 987 Boxster and Cayman models have a non-serviceable IMS bearing. As full engine disassembly is required to correctly replace the bearing with an IMS Solution, we recommend removing the grease seal off the original bearing to allow the engine oil to properly lubricate the original bearing.
