The IMS Solution

The IMS Solution takes a very different approach to Porsche’s IMS bearing design. The IMS Solution follows the lead of the intermediate or lay shaft which has long been used (trouble free) to rotate the camshafts (via chains) in all Porsche horizontally opposed Boxer type overhead cam air/oil cooled engines. This basic design was first used in 1956 with Ernst Fuhrman type 547/1 dual overhead cam flat 4 engine for the 356A Carrera. This system worked so well that it found a permanent place in all the Mezger/Piëch designed flat 6 cylinder air/oil cooled engines from the 1965 type 901.01 to the 1998 M64.60 993 Turbo plus the water cooled GT1 type racing engine and its road versions used in the 996/997 Turbo, GT2 and GT3 Models.

By the time he came to see us he was more than a little frustrated. His demeanor changed when he found out that there was nothing wrong with the new motor, or even the way it was installed — it just had to be coded to the car. In today’s world of increasingly complex automotive electronic systems, one of the realities is that components on the car must be recognized by its intended control system in order to communicate and function normally. This is simply known as a “handshake” between controllers. Another interes ... read more
