The IMS Solution only fits single row engines. 97-99 are definitely dual row, and 2000-2001 can be single or dual row.

Sorry, I did a search and couldn't find this particular question addressed. If I do an upgrade to either or both of my '99s I'd like it to be the most robust and permanent upgrade possible.
+1,
I've already retrofit a LN dual row ceramic preemptively to my 99 tip a year ago. Could not wait without any promise for unanswered hope" IMS Solution for earlier double row engines"!
I contemplated Flat 6 Innovation or Jake has probably renounced to develop it because of lower failure rate of early double row IMSB
or limited numbers who'd exchange it in there old cars.. so low marketability!,
or there would be any technical difficulty ? least possible presumably.D

Anyway, I'd take that IMS Solution if available, for my next exchange.

Now I have a definitive answer, thanks!
It probably is a factor that the reliability of the dual row plus the (I'm guessing) 100% success rate so far of the dual row retrofit has aided in the decision for no IMS Solution for the earlier cars.
I'm likely to retrofit the weekender when clutch time comes, but the daily driver is still up in the air. With nearly 140,000 miles on it, it would be my luck that I'd retrofit it, and then something else would give out and shred the engine. I'm debating if i should just drive it Til it dies, then install an upgraded engine, or look for a deal on a 2009 model for my next daily.

We developed a dual row IMS Solution from the beginning. We did not produce them because early cars had lesser values and the demand was low. Early cars have made a big rebound in the past 3-4 months and we are seeing constant IMS Solution interest from those owners.

BUT just last week our biggest distributor requested that we make them a run of Dual Row IMS Solutions. They ordered enough to fill a whole production run. As of today the material was ordered, and around 6 months from now they'll be available.

I'll be doing a dual row IMSR clinic as soon as we have the parts in hand :-)

I went with the IMS solution for my 04 S and have absolutely love it. It has given me piece of mind and Jake and his company took great care of the car not only when they had it, but also as they shipped it back to me.

Wow, cool news Jake!
Will be looking forward to its release, thank you!

Bachmoza, looks like you were right about age and low marketability being factors, at least up until now.
