Smart IMS Kit Now Available

Applicable to Every Delco Remy Genuine Starter

Last year, we unveiled the Smart Integral Magnetic Switch (IMS), or Smart IMS.
This innovative feature is eliminating the frustration customers experience with failures they believe are starter-related. Now we have the Smart IMS kit available, which enables it to be applied to any Delco Remy genuine starter.
“The Smart IMS kit is reinvigorating older trucks that don’t have ECU starter controls,” explains Michael Kirk, Senior Staff Engineer. “It works equally well on a Delco Remy 42MT or 40MT starter. It’s also ideal for over-the-road and off-highway applications.”

Easy installation of the kit also makes it attractive. The kit was designed as a drop-in, built-in replacement that only requires one additional connection.
