    Thank you for actively sharing your expertise, Jake. You're a legend. In your M9X videos, you say to never under any circumstance turn the engine counter clockwise. Well I did, and now I'm wondering what I need to address before continuing with the engine timing procedure. Appreciate your insight!

    Hi Jake,

    I've got a 2004 Porsche Boxster (base) and I am doing the IMS in the next few days. I've been reading many different instructions and such but it seems that most of them are for 5 chain motors. With that said, I am trying to figure out if i should be locking both banks or just the passenger side bank?

    Jack, can you help me understand the major difference between the LNE IMS and the new "solution product"? Its clutch time for my 2000 S.

    Hello Dr. Raby,

    I need your help.

    I'm a recent cancer survivor, low on dough and need your advice on this problem I posted in this thread: http://986forum.com/forums/boxster-general-discussions/68536-afraid-answer.html

    I would be very grateful for your advice on what to do, as you are one of the top experts!

    Thank you

    I changed my oil yesterday and got some sludge off of the LN plug. Here is the thread.

    Note, there were not chunks or even metallic bits that I could see. The spots on the pictures are reflections off a light that I was using.


    I have samples of the oil going to CAT and Blackstone Labs.

    Thanks in advance, John

    Hi JaKe,
    Could you help with a quick question from a would-be owner trying to make a good purchasing decision. Specifically I was looking at early 2000s 986, and had read that the S may have the more durable cylinders - in some way thicker and less deformable. Does this ring true? Would make sense to prefer an S over the base as far as engine longevity goes. And is cylinder liner slipping or cracking common enough to be a worry? I do understand that the IMS bearing is an issue on all these cars so would be planning to upgrade/fix that.
    Thanks for any help here!

    I posted a question on this yesterday, but under the shortlived engines survey - so not sure people would see.
