Both are definitely a DIY project with four simple provisos specific to the IMS:

1. Get a copy of the LN Engineering IMS procedures (available online as a PDF file).
2. Make sure you have all the necessary tools and fixtures before you start.
3. Follow the LN procedures to the letter; no shortcuts, no substitutions.
4. Take your time and ask questions if you are unsure before proceeding.

The new design RMS is supposed to require a $500 tool that has no other known uses. Fortunately, a 3” CPVC pipe coupler from Lowes or Home Depot can be substituted, provided you do some online searching to see how to do it.

You should also consider doing the AOS while you have the car apart, it is very easy with the Tip out of the way.
