So it had always been a curse of the 986/996. And now it is time for me to start researching for my own personal sake.

2003 986, 2.7L. 105,000 miles.

Original IMS and clutch.

Being that it is original and the car has 105,000 - looking to replace both.

Any ideas on the cost to have this done?

I did a google search on "2003 boxster IMS repair cost" and found several posts in various forums with the information you are looking for.

Here is what cargurus posted:

For a 2000-2005 model, it costs about $2500 to install a ceramic bearing IMS replacement versus the approx. $20,000 cost of replacing an engine. Say we have a 1 in 10 failure rate, that works out to $2000 per car (on average).

There is also 986forum.com (not to steer you away from this site).
