I got the top up, and both the top and front covers off. No cat. Crawled under the car far enough to be certain she is not on top of the transmission. She's not in the car.

The 987.1 still has the IMS bearing, and, although much rarer, IMS issues are not unknown. Replacing an IMS bearing requires cracking the engine open, so it's REALLY expensive. Aside from that,...

The engine hasn't been taken apart yet, so no, I haven't seen the IMS. I have a photo of the oil filter which I can't figure out how to post. But it is classic IMS oil...
