The failure rate on an 02 single-row IMS bearing is a little higher than that. On the figures released by Porsche during the class-action suit, they reported claims on 8-10 % of the cars so equipped and, of course, we can assume that there were a number where no one contacted a Porsche dealership. That still means that the vast majority will not fail. And of course, rather than planning for the engine to fail, you can always bite the bullet and replace the clutch and upgrade the IMS bearing for a lot less money! Either way, welcome to the forum. Enjoy your car and don't obsess over a potential, but unlikely problem. As someone much wiser than myself once said, if it doesn't happen, there will have been no sense worrying about it; if it does happen, worrying won't have changed it.
