That had to be something to have him bend the crank pulley. It's stiff as hell.

To make a long story short (and guys help me out here), I would do the following after jacking up the back end of the car at a minimum (use jackstands!):

1- Remove the intercooler and down tube to the turbo
2- Remove the belt off the alt fan pulley
2a- Remove the rear engine tin
3- Remove the A/C compressor off the bracket mount
4- Remove the muffler
5- Remove the A/C bracket mount
6- Jack the engine up just enough to take the weight off the crossmember and support it.
7- Remove the two bolts holding the crossmember to the chassis
8- Remove all the bolts holding the crossmember to the engine mount (there is one that's inside and hard to "see" on the passenger side
9- Remove the engine mount
10- Remove the crank pulley

If you have any manuals, they are the same staps to follow, you are just doing it with the engine in the car. If you take your time, keep track off parts, nuts, etc. you will be able to get it done. Take lots of digi pics and keep nuts/bolts/washers in zip locs with their respective parts.

Here are some pics to help.

BTW. Look at the time stamps to see our progress one afternoon.
