Hello,
Just went to go do the IMS retrofit on my 2000 Boxster with the parts I got from here, Pelican Parts. When I got to the old IMS, I noticed the center shaft is considerably bigger than the one I got from Pelican parts. Does anyone know if the one from LN Engineering has a larger diameter center shaft/center bolt? Or if not, are there any other makers whose centershaft is thicker/larger diameter? I have already ordered and received the parts from pelican parts but if there is already an LN Engineering or upgraded IMS in there, I would just rather leave it in there.

Big Thanks

ps - when I got to the ims, found out it was my rear main that was leaking and not the ims.

It sounds like there's an upgrade of some kind in there. If the flange is totally machined steel, I'd guess it's maybe an L & N. If it's a forging with machine work, it will have a Porsche PN stamped/forged on it.

Why not post a picture on a forum Jake Raby frequents and ask him? He answered a question similar the other day. (I think he might have a scan for his name mentioned in postings as he seems to pick those up quickly.)

What size is the center bolt nut? Is it 22 MM? Reason I ask is that you may have a late replacement engine in the car, with a non serviceable IMS bearing.
