You can verify on the LN Engineering website if the IMS is authentic via serial number. I also would look for the RMS to have been done at the same time.

Join - lots of info on 996 forum site.

good luck hunting.

Yes, a 996. It's within a reasonable price range for me without bleeding. I think they're undervalued all because the headlights aren't roundf.Yup, got to have the IMS and RMS fixed. Maybe a 997 if I want to stretch it a bit.
BUT- ChiefPlumber makes an excellent point with the air cooled 911. If I'm not looking for a daily driver, it may be the better choice.
You haven't gotten rid of me yet. All those who have owned 911's of any flavor,please, keep chiming in.
