One of the USA based 40th Anniversary models clocking up the miles - not too sure if he's bothered about the IMS bearing, just too busy driving.

https://www.facebook.com/40jahre911/photos/pcb.2211477055768038/2211476979101379/?type=3&theater

Edit - we think he's still on the original bearing.

Cheers....Ian

Mine’s coming up to 171k, with all original internals.

Replaced the RMS earlier this year and had a look at the IMS whilst the box was out. Seal is long gone, but nothing visibly wrong, so left it alone.

I saw that on FB the other day, great stuff.

Interesting how the Americans worry less about putting miles on their 996s and also don’t seem to mention bore score much.

There does however seem to be a whole industry based around IMSB snake oil replacements.

Amen DeMort, that one sentence could probably sum up the whole IMSB issue.

We brits are so hung up on mileage ie 100k and it’s going to blow up and it’s worth nothing when chances are cars with 100k plus are used and have money spent on them to keep them in working order.

My 2 previous cars had in the region of 150k on when I bought them. 3 years later and I moved them on for virtually the same price.

If that was the case Porsche would have been sued by every Porsche owner of these engines as I know every car manufacturer has to test cars to destruction and crazy miles before they can put the car into production.

105k

Millers oil analysis - engine clean as a whistle, no bearing material/Alu/Moly/lead etc

They said the oil was in good condition after routine 4000mile annual replacement
