In my case, I purchased a used engine that had been factory rebuilt with the Large IMS bearing. I pulled the oil seal so it can be lubricated by the engine oil. I also track my car almost exclusively and it certainly sees enough sloshing oil IMO. So I have no plans on replacing it. So far, 60 hrs of track time on it and runs like a champ. I must admit that I also have a custom Accusump set up with a EBS oil baffle system, but that does not relate to the IMS bearing, but IMO helps in reducing M9x engine failure related to oil starvation. If you can design a low cost dry sump for these cars, you will sell quite a few.
