FlatSix Permanent IMS Fix

Does anyone have further information regarding the "permanent" fix for the IMS bearing issue from FlatSix and LN Engineering? Appears they've taken the book from the air cooled engines that suffered from collapsed chain tensioners and applied it to a consent fed IMS bearing of some sort. Having owned quite a few air cooled 911s over the years, I've always made sure they were equipped with the pressure fed tensioners and have never had one fail, even with countless track situations.

I know Jake and Charles have been a bit quiet on the matter (patent pending), but it appears they are ready to market the component.

Too bad the aftermarket has to continually make up for the lack of engineering from Porsche...

We are't keeping quiet on it now.. The patent protection has been in place for a while.

All the unit that we do not fit here at Flat 6 (as retrofits or in our engines) are being sold to a wholesale distributor who will market the units. It'll be up to someone else to market this product and this is how all my products are going now. Pretty much done with direct interface here.
