huge oil leak

A friend has a 2003 996 and it has made noises, as well as dumping oil on the ground. Very likely a IMS issue.

My question to the 996 team is .... when the IMS bearing fails, does it follow with a large oil leak?

Sometimes, particularly when the center bolt fails. I'd suggest not starting or even turning the motor over until you confirm the problem.

I think the motor is toast so .... starting or not is somewhat moot...
