The issue with the IMS bearing has been fixed.
The problem has never been the bearing. It has been lack of lubrication.
With the technoFix DOF Kit we send a constant stream of filtered, cooled engine oil right onto the balls of the intermediate shaft’s infamous bearing.
DOF stands for Direct Oil Feed.
This is an easy installation requiring only the removal of the transmission, clutch/torque converter and flywheel. the engine stays in the car.
Our technoFix DOF Kit will work on every M96/M97 engine from the first 2.5 liter Boxster from ’97 through the last Boxster, Cayman and Carrera through 2008.
We make three versions to cover all production years:
1.- For Double-Row IMS bearing shod cars
2.- For first generation single row IMS bearing shod cars
3.- For second generation large single row IMS bearing shod cars.
The technoFix DOF Kit was engineered and extensively tested by Porsche enthusiasts and racers throughout several years of real-world applications.
The technoFix DOF Kit is patented technology which we now keep in stock, ready to ship.
for double & single row bearing:
1997 - 2000 (double bearing)
2001 - 2005 (single bearing)
single-row IMS bearing
2005 - 2008
Please note that model year 2000 and 2001 overlap in the type of IMS bearing used by the factory, so it could be a double-row or a single-row bearing.
Likewise model years 2005 and 2006 also overlap in the type of IMS bearing used by the factory, so it could be replaceable single row, or the non-replaceable single row.
When you install the technoFix DOF Kit you also need to install a new IMS bearing kit at the same time.
Our bearing kits are offered at very attractive prices, and we carry them in single-row and double-row design depending on your particular engine.
The kits include the bearing, stronger-than-OEM center support shaft with O-rings, nut and retaining clip.
For 987/997 (2005-2008) vehicles, the correct part is the technoFix DOF2 Kit.
Since the single row larger bearing in these cars cannot be removed, there is no IMS Bearing Kit needed, just the Direct Oil Feed2 Flange.
