The technology behind the IMS Solution was invented by Jake Raby and Charles Navarro, years before the standard ceramic composite hybrid ball bearing retrofit was released. Several years were required to develop and thoroughly test the performance of the IMS Solution in all operating conditions. The IMS Solution and its oil fed plain bearing is designed to last the life of the engine, just like the other journal (plain) bearings within the engine. Put simply, the IMS Solution was developed to create the ultimate solution to IMS bearing issues without resorting to ball or roller bearing that require future servicing.
