RMS

Engine

Model: 996 C2, Year:2002, Mileage:22,300, Type of use:Street use only
Recently I had my 02 C2 911 servivced by a very respected Porsche mechanic. We discussed the fact that the new version of the RMS used in the 997s had been installed as a replacement for the original factory installed RMS. The RMS had been installed by removing the transmission and flywheel but not removing the engine by a Porsche Dealer at 13369 miles. He stated that while it can be done without removing the engine, it is extremely difficult to align everything without pulling the engine. He said that if everything was not properly aligned in the installation I will have clutch problems eventually. I note that in your responses to the RMS problem that you state that the replacement of the RMS is done without removing the engine. I have put about 9000 miles on the car since the replacement and I have no clutch or oil leakage problems. Should I be concerned about how the RMS was replaced and do you agree that replacing the RMS by a Porsche Dealer without removing the engine is risky? Thanks for your help.
