IMS Failure

on my 04 Boxster S 550 SE, 86k miles, just had engine totally rebuilt with aftermarket "fix", don't have the exact details from the engine rebuilder, but cost was 9500 for total rebuild with "fix" and one year warranty on the engine... love the car, so if I get another 85k miles and I won't complain. Bought the car for 24k three years ago and have driven it hard and fast. Car was modded with softtronic, headers w/o primary cats, free flow airbox, but when engine "blew" it was just at idle at a stoplight. Interesting to note that the engine rebuild used more 996 parts than 986 parts, will post list of new parts if interest...
