When you reuse the OEM canister with a new filter insert over and over, you're reusing the same bypass valve spring. As springs age, they sag or don't sustain the same pressure as when they were new, so reusing that same spring can allow for some oil to always bypass the filter media and flow straight into the motor
  2. You don't have a plastic housing holding the lifeblood of your engine. Plastic over time atrophies, especially if repeatedly heat-cycled, as the esters evaporate, weakening the structure of the plastic. The metal filter canister is both stronger and gets renewed each time
  3. You can attach a filter magnet to it which helps to pull any ferrous debris from circulating through it

I've never ever heard of the plastic filter housing broken due to aging or repeated heat-cycles, or any effect of ester oil evaporation that will cause the housing to be defunctional. Yes, over torquing will break it, so as the metal canister filter. However, one con of the current plastic filter housing is the old oil including all the debris collected in the housing will drain back into the oil pan. All that dirty oil + contaminates collected within the filter medium goes back into the system. Sure it can be drained out, but a good part of the debris still stays in the system. The spin on oil filter eliminated that problem because the dirty oil collection within won't drain back.

Bummer! Sorry to hear. Any thoughts on its replacement yet?

Very nice.

Is that an OEM aerokit front spoiler? Like the clear side lens too.

(All I’ve done to my C4GTS is the center bass by sharkwerks like you’ve done).

Man, that sucks. So you sold it as a roller? What did you get for it?

What year, what motor, what mileage? Any track use that you know of? How as the overrev report?

Do you know which bearing was in the car that failed - small or large?

Sorry for all the questions, but the answers to these as a post-mortem might help the community to avoid a similar fate.

You might've pulled the hard top and sold it separately, unless it was part of the roller deal, as their worth $600-$800 I think.

That may be the case, but after the 955 Cayenne plastic coolant pipe issues, I'm not a fan of plastic parts that are subject to heat cycling, so will continue to change those out when a metal alternative is available.

2006 M97 IMS failure at 117,428 miles. I took it to one DE. Never ran the over rev report as I purchased the car 8 years ago at 27k miles.
It has/had the larger IMS bearing.
Pics are posted in the IMS failure thread.
Hard top was part of the deal. I hadn't used it the last 3 years.



some of my ***** are missing?!

Damn it sickens me to see an 06 997.1 got an IMS bearing failure. Really curious if the car was abused or tracked.

Literally on the car and I'm sure figuratively for you - nothing like a kick in the nads with missing *****.

I remember this one now

^^This is why I went with the adapter and Napa Gold filter. Better filtration closer to the 20 micron level.

I am so sorry to read this. It must have been tough to let her go.

Joyrides in our cars, are truely joyrides! I love the look of absolute delight on first timer's faces, the feel, the sound, the precision, they can't contain themselves.

Replaced the cabin air filter and upgraded the air filter to the AFE Pro Dry S. Maybe it's just me but it feels like the engine breathes better now.
