LN Engineering Single Row Pro Bearing IMS Retrofit Kit

LN Engineering Single Row Pro Bearing IMS Retrofit Kit - 106 08.2.2

[106-08.2.2] Second Generation

Fits Porsche Boxster, 911 model years 2000-2005 M96 and M97 engines fitted with early single row bearing IMS. Does not fit GT2, GT3, or Turbo.

The second-generation single row IMS Retrofit, called the Pro IMS Retrofit, provides a superior ceramic hybrid double row ball bearing with 90% increased load capacity compared to the single row bearing it replaces for improved reliability and longevity. As with all previous IMS Retrofit Kits, an upgraded bearing support (center bolt), flange, microencapsulated bolts, and retaining ring are included.

IMS Solution oil fed plain bearing arrangement similar in functionality to the intermediate shaft bearing used in the past aircooled models and most recently in the GT2, GT3, and Turbo models based off the GT1 aka Metzger engine, which eliminates the ball-bearing design completely. Typically replacement of the IMS bearing takes 10-14 hours (with exception of some Tiptronic 911 models) and is usually serviced at the same time the clutch is being replaced, or every 50,000 miles (for 4 years, like a timing belt on many modern engines).

Retrofit Kit Includes:

  • Ceramic hybrid double row ball bearing
  • IMS flange hub
  • Flange seal, o-ring(s)
  • Bearing retainer, bearing support, and fastener(s)
  • Stronger, revised billet chromoly assembly.

The Faultless Tools IMS Removal and Installation Tool Kit (106-08.22) is required for installation of the Single Row Pro IMS Retrofit, in addition to the IMS Pro Tool Kit (106-08.13).

Some models 00-01 may have been equipped with single or dual row bearings - Visual Inspection of bearing flange required to determine single row or dual row bearing
