2004 Porsche Boxster IMS Replacement

2004 Porsche Boxster IMS Replacement

This 2004 Porsche Boxster S is in for IMS bearing replacement.                   The IMS is the Achilles heel of 996 and 997 911s (excluding Turbo models) as well as all 986 and 987 Boxsters.  IMS stands for intermediate shaft. This geared shaft basically converts crankshaft motion to camshaft motion on either side of the engine. The IMS bearing supports the intermediate shaft and if it fails it can throw your cam timing which will cause extensive engine damage. This failure can happen at any mileage, with no warning. Your best option if you own a Porsche from the affected years would be to have the IMS bearing upgraded to avoid an engine rebuild or replacement. While we’re in there, we often recommend a clutch replacement as well (if it’s at or below 50% or starting to fray) since the labor is nearly the same.   Written by Kasey Scahall

It does not matter what you like or how much/ little money you must spend, we are all the same. Whether you like to cruise in a luxury sedan, race hundred-thousand-dollar machines, autocross a little sports car… we recognize each other as enthusiasts and can bond over our passion regardless of what make, price point, or style of driving we are involved in. There are not many other areas of interest where you see complete inclusiveness- there are no racial, social, or economic barriers once you start talking to another car addict. Competitiveness and the desire to be unique or have a one-of-a-kind vehicle is a common denominator among the drivers that I know- and as much as that ... read more

  1974 Porsche Targa Street Sleeper Build We recently had the opportunity to perform a major overhaul on this 1974 Porsche Targa.  Our client wanted outstanding power and performance like no other, so over the next several months we stripped out the drivetrain and suspension to build an ultimate street sleeper.
