the n54 is not unreliable at all... everyone is spoiled around here... we can count on one hand the amount of motors that popped with 1,000s of clueless end users...
who cares if you need a hpfp once every two years, its warrantied... your wastegates rattle? Whore cares? Go get a loaner and they fix it...
tranny and motor are rock solid
its so irrational to say that n54 is unreliable... it may be the most reliable engine I have ever owned
