I read about the IMS Guardian advertised for the IMS problem. It is an early alert system which invloves replacing the oil drain plug with a magnetic switch which will activate an alarm in the dash when metal particles deposit enought on the magnet to close the switch. Since it seems that not all 996 engines will have IMS failure is this a good way to delay replacing the IMS bearing until it is required. Has there been much eperience shared by users of this IMS Guardian system?
