2004 Carrera X-51

Hello Porsche Experts;

After many years of ownership of air-cooled 911s, I am contemplating the purchase of a 2004 40th Anniversary model and I have a few questions:

Do all of the 40th Anniversary 911s come with the X-51 Power Kit?

From my research it appears that these cars (despite the X-51 designation) are vulnerable to the dreaded IMS bearing failure, correct?

Can the IMS bearing be replaced with the engine in the car with these models?

Thanks and Happy Motoring!

993C2S BODY STYLE

Model: 993C2S, Year:1997, Mileage:75,000, Type of use:Street use only
I'M THE PROUD OWNER OF A BEAUTIFULL 1997 993C2S. I HAVE BEEN TRYING TO DETERMINE IF IT IS STOCK. THE SPOILER IS A FIXED "WALE TAIL" TYPE. IT DOES NOT HAVE THE AEREO KIT TYPE FRONT SPOILER. I HAVE THE WINDOW STICKER AND LOTS OF SERVICE RECORDS WITH NO REFERENCE TO AN UPGRADE OR ADD ON. WHEN I LOOK AT 993 PICTURES, MY CAR LOOKS JUST LIKE THE 1997 TURBO, BUT I DON'T SEE ANY REFERENCE TO THE C2S. WHERE CAN I FIND INFO ON BODY TRIM OUTS FOR THIS MODEL?
