Punch list for an engine swap....

my 03 S had a new engine by a installed by a CA Porsche dealer in 2009. I have the bill, but it is pretty vague.. engine replaced under warranty n/c.

Anyone know what they really do? For example does it include new motor mounts?
Most recent (Porsche) IMS fix?

Chassis has 60K and engine 15K so I am putting together my maintenance list for this summer.

is you have the third IMS design from Porsche, the least desirable one as it is the most expensive by far to replace. But you can't really know that until you get the trans off and look at the IMS area. You should have the latest RMS seal though.

When I got the reman. engine from Porsche last year it came with the new 987 engine mount. The last IMS update was from 2006 so it definitely should be latest in 2009.
