Will an engine number provide a positive identification of my engine in regard to IMS Solution compatibility?
No, unfortunately engine numbers are a very poor method of determining IMS Solution or even IMS Retrofit bearing compatibility. All MY 2000/2001 and 2005 engines require visual inspection to ensure compatibility. This requires trans-axle removal to facilitate the visual inspection of the IMS flange.
Check our other website, IMS Retrofit for pictures and explanations of each bearing/flange.
