In the last month everything that can go wrong with the n54 has happened.started with replacing coils/plugs because of misfire codes.then found out the valve cover was cracked.replaced that.then discoverd the #5 injector was bad.installed new index 11+ and got the car back on monday.it was running good until friday when the belt disintegrated.its been an expensive month.
