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.

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
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.

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.

DIY - changing oil on a Porsche 996
A short tutorial to demonstrate how to change oil on your water cooled 911.
Applies to 996 and 997 cars - and quite similar for Boxsters and Caymans.
Even turbos and GT3 will be similar
(although there's a secondary drain plug on them).
I also demonstrate how to open up the filter to inspect for metal
particles. A few metal particles is normal - a lot shows excessive wear.
Drain plug torque = 37 ft.lbs.
Oil filter torque = 19 ft.lbs.
Oil capacity - 8.7 quarts
Sorry for some of the jumpy editing, but I had to keep it under 10 minutes
Top Gear testing Porsche 911 996
After 34 years in production the famous air-cooled 911 was replaced by an
all-new water-cooled model. Known as the Type 996, this car was a major
leap for Porsche, although many of the traits that defined the 911 during
past decades still remained. With the new model there was finally a newly
designed bodyshell (all previous 911s being based on the original 1963
shell). As with the 993 before it the 996 was also a significant model, but
mainly for the way it was conceived and designed, and the effect it had on
Porsche during the 1990s.
Pundits criticized the 996's styling a great deal, largely because it
shared its headlamps— indeed much of its front end, mechanically— with
the less expensive Boxster. The 996 had been on the drawing board first and
was a more advanced car in some respects, but the cost-cutting seemed
inappropriate for an expensive car. Otherwise, the Pinky Lai-penned shape
followed the original Butzi Porsche design very closely; the Carrera model
had a 0.30 Coefficient of drag. The interior was further criticized for its
plainness and its lack of relationship to prior 911 interiors, although
this came largely from owners of older 911s.
The Type 996 spawned over a dozen variations, including all wheel drive
Carrera 4 and Carrera 4S (which had a 'turbo look') models, the club racing-oriented GT3,
and the forced-induction 996 turbo and
GT2. The turbo, four-wheel-drive and
twin-turbo, often made appearances in
magazines' lists of the best cars on sale.
996 GT3 RSThe Carrera and Carrera 4 underwent revisions for model year
2002, receiving the front headlight/indicator lights which were first seen
on the turbo version two years earlier.
This allowed the 911 to be more distinguishable from the Boxster. A mildly
revised front fascia was also introduced, though the basic architecture
A limited number (1963)of 2004 40th Anniversary Editions include a more
powerful 345-horsepower engine, a
standard Porsche Stability Management system (PSM), enhanced acceleration
due to a mechanical rear axle differential lock, more aggressive suspension
tuning. Painted GT Silver metallic, the 40th Anniversary edition of the
2004 Porsche 911 Carrera has front air cooling openings like the Porsche
911 turbo, body-color air intake
grilles, unique sill trim and an aluminum 911 logo on the engine cover,
polished 18-inch wheels, and high-gloss chromed tailpipes. Other equipment
on this limited production model includes a power sunroof and bi-Xenon
headlights with dynamic beam angle control and lens cleaners. Inside the
40th Anniversary 911 Carrera, dark gray leather sport seats include
two-stage heating, special silver metallic and aluminum interior trim and a
numbered plaque on the center console. Ref: 'Autobytel.com, 2004 Porsche
