The IMS Solution
The IMS Solution is the only permanent solution to catastrophic IMS bearing
failures by the complete omission of the problematic single row ball
bearing. The IMS Solution fits model year 2000 through model year 2005
engines with the single row bearing IMS. The IMS Solution does not fit
models with a dual row IMS bearing or the model year 2006 or later type IMS
bearing. For more information visit http://www.theimssolution.com

IMS Bearing Direct Oil Feed (DOF) Installation Video by TuneRS Motorsports
The Direct Oil Feed (DOF) for IMS Bearings was designed and developed by
The patent-pending IMS Bearing Direct Oil Feed (DOF) kit for all MY97-08
Porsche water cooled engines (excluding GT2, GT3 and turbo models). The IMS Bearing problem that is
existent in these engines is due to the lack of proper lubrication to the
IMS Bearing. This kit is not a DIY installation, please consult with your
local Porsche shop for installation.

Porsche 911: Used Car Pre-Purchase Inspection -- /DRIVE CLEAN
/DRIVE CLEAN's first episode of season 2 is set to cover one of the most
overlooked aspects of buying a used car, and that's the pre-purchase
If you intend to purchase a used classic and spend your time driving and
protecting it, then you would do best to inspect it before you buy. This
particular car is a second hand Porsche 911 and the buyer in question is
admittedly obsessive. We took the opportunity to document the whole
transaction from begin to end, and noted 10 actionable steps that will help
you when buying a used car.

Porsche Water Pump Replacement
Here's the water pump replacement on a 1999 Porsche 911 996. The Boxster
986 uses the same water pump but has a somewhat different layout and
procedure. Sorry for the shakiness. I didn't have a tripod short enough for
under-car shots, so I was one-handing it while working. I also apologize
for kind of skipping over the entire reassembly process, but we're limited
to 10 minutes, and it's just the reverse of the disassembly. I backed my
car onto ramps for this to give myself additional camera clearance, but
I've also done it with the car on the ground. Visit renntech.org for great
DIY instructions and tips to complement this video.

How to Restore a Black 996 Porsche Track Car
This is a buddies car that I needed to restore after many years of track
days and little to no detailing/cleaning. In this longer video, I discuss
the different steps and products used to restore the paint to near
perfection. I also introduce a few new products for "claying" your paint,
and show the differences between a rotary polisher and DA polisher. (It is
a bit on the long side, but its important to understand the thought process
behind paint correction prior to working on a difficult job such as a
Porsche 996 in black.) Hope this is helpful. Send me emails if you have
additional questions. Thanks guys. -L

IMS Bearing Problem - Direct Oil Feed (DOF) Solution by TuneRS Motorsports
The Direct Oil Feed (DOF) for IMS Bearings was designed and developed by
The patent-pending Intermediate Shaft Bearing (IMS Bearing) Direct Oil Feed
System (DOF) for all MY97-08 M96 and M97 Porsche engines to assist in
preventing possible IMS Bearing failures. Designed and developed by TuneRS
Motorsports. Copyright TuneRS Motorsports 2013.
Vehicle Application for (DOF)
Porsche Vehicles manufactured between 1997 to 2008 with water cooled
engines excluding turbo, GT2, GT3 and
The (DOF) kit increases oil flow to compensate for the lack of lubrication
of the Intermediate Shaft Bearing on M96 and M97 Porsche engines. This
failure is all too common on the 1997-2004 Boxster models and 1998-2004 996
Models, often with catastrophic results. We have even seen Intermediate
Shaft Bearing failures on MY05-08 997 and 987 Porsche vehicles.
The cause of these bearing failures is insufficient lubrication.
The direct oil feed (DOF) solution uses a custom made Intermediate Shaft
Flange that utilizes a direct oil feed to the original Intermediate Shaft
Bearing. It uses an adapted pressure fed oil line from a positive oil
pressure feed on the cylinder head directly to an opening in the custom
Intermediate Shaft Flange. This feeds fresh oil directly to the open end of
the IMS bearing (after removing the seal to expose the ball bearings on the
IMS bearing). By using a positive oil feed from the engine's cylinder head
valve cover, there will always be a consistent flow of oil directed to the
open end of the intermediate shaft bearing.
