Does your bearing work in the 2005 boxster 987?

It should, but the crossover to the bigger sized bearing occurred somewhere in that year range, so I suggest you take a look.

I have designed a replcement shaft insert that removes the bearing from the shaft to the case. The shaft insert will insert down the center of the shaft and is a inteference fit. You leave the outer race of the bearing in place as you cannot pull it out anyways. When you tighten the allan screw in the shaft insert it spreads 3 locking rings into the original bearing race locking the shaft in place. It is just in the drawing phase but hopefully soon to have a working model. Unfortuneately you have to destroy the original bearing to install this idea, because you can't remove the bigger bearing. But, you get have an oiler lube a new bearing that is repaceable and it removes the flex point from inside the shaft to the case.

This sent from my phone so spelling might be way off and its hard to see what i am typing.

You can't generalize about '05 motors as there were 2 revisions of the IMS design used. In the beginning of the build cycle, the '04 design was still being used. Sometime in the middle of the year, Porsche started to use the same design they would use on the '06-08 cars. And you can't tell without pulling the transmission off the engine and inspecting the IMS housing. No way of determining by engine serial number that anyone has posted.
