My experience

Hi! A post to explain my experience with the break of the ims. I bought a 996 mk1 cabrio used, a fantastic car that also had the assurance that the ims of origin had been changed by a double kit of Insaro .. the warranty seemed total .. well.
In short, the Insaro kit has failed with 40,000 kms .. although out of warranty period (I do not use the Porsche very often), you will agree that they are few kilometers, with the result you can imagine. Yes, the same that had to protect the engine has disintegrated destroying everything in its path.
The worst thing is that after the breakdown from Insaro they did not take the phone to my mechanic and when they finally did they asked for a series of pieces to find out what could have happened ... we sent them and ... from there on only answer and impossible to get an answer. Unfortunately many others affected if they have responded in the forums explaining what we fear ... Insanity is missing since their kits began to give problems and has no interest in finding out why their kits fail. The opinion of my mechanic is that no matter how well sold the components are of very low quality and are bound to break.
