N54 problems. haha

Doing it all at once with the subframe out is the best idea for sure. Get in and do it all. Just plan on replacing a lot of gaskets and seals as well. That is the time to get at all that. Used cars man. hahahaha

Pratt, she looks like trouble! The kind of trouble that'll get you locked up, or have you paying for kids that aren't yours

Sorry, back on topic now.

installed the pulleys, then i found the actual reason the belt was shredded. the powersteering pulley is broken, after reading into the issue, i guess it's from worn out motor mounts. FUCK!! i ordered an aluminum pulley, and im going to notch the subframe for the meantime until i buy the mounts which are a few hundred, then a bitch to install due to dropping subframe and have to remove dp's again.

oh, im def. fixing it, just costing me a lot more than what i wanted to spend on maintenance. the more i have to spend on this little, dumb shit, the longer it will be until i can afford a single turbo setup.

in the past, when i have purchased a new car to build, i have always sold guns to come up with extra mod money, im trying to refrain from that this time, but it's getting hard. i want a single setup so bad!! sucks having 2 expensive hobbies (shooting and speed), 2 kids, and only a decent paying career.

going to be installing motor mounts, trans mounts, oil pan gasket, and valve cover gasket in the next week or so (whenever i find time)

i just need this bitch to stop breaking and i could afford my front tires for the 17" skinnies.

I like it.

A set of turbos and a 10 second time slip would be pretty bad ass.

i still haven't made up my mind whether im going upgraded twins or single. single will ultimately make more power via dyno, but i enjoy this car so much due to the low end tq. but obviously that means it's harder on the trans and internals. many reports of bent rods after upgraded twins, so i'd probably limit myself to around 550-600whp.
