The IMSG Jr. uses the same exact MCD Sensor, but a different interface and is a universally applicable system that does not integrate as factory in the Porsche dash, like the IMSG Sr. does (for cars pre 2005). The IMSG Jr. is now available.

LN Engineering now sells these units and we are only the manufacturers.

Here is a sample of the type of material the IMSG MCD is designed to detect.
Jake, is a motor that has shed that much metal a candidate for an IMSB replacement, or does the motor have to be torn apart and rebuilt?
