I've said it before and I'll say it again. Owning a car with a N* is like dating a beautiful woman ... fast, sexy and you want your friends to see you with her, but high maintenance and she is sure to dump you some day.

If you do not try to, or try to find somebody to do it for you, then be ready to replace the motor when it hydrolocks.
It really is not that hard to do, I know of a video that is pretty helpful.

http://www.cpaclubgp.com/misc/lim-gasket.html

To view that video you will most likely need the most up to date VLC player installed, along with its web player utility.
