In stock (can be backordered)Compare
Part Number: TRS-DOF-0508
Fitment: 2005-2008 Porsche 911 / Cayman / Boxster models
Some early 1997-2004 Porsches that have had a factory engine replacement after 2006 will require this kit as Porsche changed to the later style larger IMSB.
Protect your Porsche from a possible IMS Bearing failure today! These kits should only be installed as preventative maintenance. If your engine has already suffered any type of internal damage, whether related to the IMS or to another component, we recommend the engine to be further inspected and diagnosed. Simply installing our DOF kit or any IMS kit on the market will not correct damage that is already present.
Professional installation highly recommended.
DOES NOT REQUIRE ENGINE DISMANTLING TO INSTALL THE DOF KIT ONLY, HOWEVER, IF YOU ARE REPLACING THE IMS BEARING ON YOUR M97 ENGINE, A COMPLETE ENGINE TEAR DOWN WILL BE REQUIRED TO EXTRACT AND REPLACE THE BEARING. PROFESSIONAL INSTALLATION RECOMMENDED.
The patent-pending Intermediate Shaft Bearing Direct Oil Feed System (DOF) lubrication & cooling kit for all MY05-08 M97 Porsche engines to assist in preventing possible IMS failures by providing the necessary lubrication and cooling to the IMS bearing. Designed, developed & manufactured by TUNERS Motorsports. TUNERS Motorsports IMS Bearing Direct Oil Feed Kit (DOF) lubrication kit for 2005-2008 Porsche 997 / 987 models with the larger, non extractable IMS bearing and for vehicles equipped with factory replacement engines after 2006 with the larger IMSB.
This is the ONLY IMS lubrication & cooling kit on the market WORLDWIDE!
The intermediate shaft bearing found on M96 and M97 Porsche engines require a constant flow of oil to provide the necessary lubrication and cooling the IMS bearing needs. Simply relying on “splash lubrication” or “mist lubrication” is not sufficient to drop operating temperature on the bearing and lubricate. The cooling benefit is a drop of 30 degrees F to the IMSB.
Included in the Direct Oil Feed kit:
- Patent-pending DOF Flange with anti-rust zinc plating
- 3 micro-encapsulated Porsche bolts
- Engine oil port adapter with crush ring
- 2x Cam Plugs
- 3,000psi hydraulic hose, DOT
- Fitting for hose
- Thread locker
The Direct Oil Feed (DOF) IMS lubrication & cooling kit uses a patent pending custom made Intermediate Shaft Flange that utilizes a direct oil feed to the intermediate shaft bearing. It uses an adapted pressure fed oil line from a positive oil pressure feed on the cylinder head directly to an opening in the custom DOF Flange. This feeds fresh & cool oil directly to the open end of the IMS bearing (after removing the seal to expose the ball bearings on the IMS bearing) providing a constant flow of cool, and filtered oil to the IMS bearing. By using a positive oil feed from the engine’s cylinder head valve cover, there will always be a consistent flow of oil directed to the open end of the intermediate shaft bearing. This is a cost effective way to help protect against IMS failure due to lack of lubrication & cooling.
