996 GT2 IMS Bearing for 986 / regular 996?

Since GT2 & GT3s were equipped with fail-proof plain IMS bearings.... why are not people using their parts to upgrade 986's and 911's?

Exactly. Different engine design between the 986/996 and the 996 GT-3.

You can read a nice summary here: Mezger Engine Explained

Well actually "The Solution" is a flat bearing similar to the one in the Mezger engines. So someone is using the idea, just not the same bearing.
