Please feed back when they tell you what it is. I'd be surprised if it was your IMS bearing.

Possibly so, the IMS bearing may be goosed, but it may not be the cause of the problem. Could have had a jammed valve or something that then put too much strain on the chains and bearing causing them to also fail.
