VTT crank bolt capture

Just curious to know if anyone has installed the VTT crank bolt capture on their n55 powered m2 just as a precaution. Since the n55 and n54 share the same crank hub as the s55, but are less likely to fail.

I'm probably going to get one soon for my car, but just wanted to know how everyone else is doing.

So I am assuming no one? Well I guess I will be the first then, just hoping the bolt holes line up.

I'll probably install just for good measure. Only takes about 4-5 hrs to install. Can be done without removing any coolant or other lines if careful.

Please let us know how it goes.

It's also alot different on the N55 powered M2 since we dont have the bottom mounted oil cooler.

But sure I'll keep you guys posted.

There's also a sale next week incase any of you guys are interested. It's going to be 30% off which is even better than the deal they had on black Friday for the CBC.

I forgot to also mention, the install will be a huge PITA and waste of time if I have to pull the radiator fan, remove the belts, and drop the bottom skid plate just to see the capture not fit. I've had alot of stuff not fit my m2 before but this would be the worst thing to not fit by a long shot.

Thanks! Yeah I'll try my best to take photos, but generally speaking I never do any install guides because I'm more focused on what I'm doing rather than taking photos and lengthening the whole process. Plus this is in a really cramped area where I'll be doing the install with a mirror, so I'm not sure I can even take photos.

It's listed for $99 on their site but always seems to be that price. Where are you seeing 30% off?

It's part of their march tax return sale, code is CBC30 as per their other forum post. Splock was 30% off last week.
