Default Automatic WRX UD pulley install - HELP!!

I am having trouble installing a Vishnu Underdrive pulley. How do you lock the engine up so you can remove the pulley when you have an auto? Can't put it in gear like a 5sp. Help!!!
Thanks,
Jon

Ok this is a little dangerous and maybe a little ghetto. But it has worked for every crank pully removal I've ever done

first, start the engine. Find out which way the motor turns. Next pull the fuel pump fuse. Remove plastic undertray below the pully. Get a breaker bar(long) you may need to add pipe to extend it. Put a socket on the bar and put it on the pully. Now depending on which way the motor turns you can brace it against the ground or have a guy hold the end of the bar against your subframe......either way just BLIP the starter (the engine won't start). Now the nut is loose You must make sure the breaker bar is positioned that the nut will loosen opposite the engine turning and that it is braced against somethin hard. Otherwise the bar will smack something very hard!!!

Use this advice at your own risk

hehe, thanks, when I put a pulley on my Ford Focus that is exactly what my instructions said to do and it worked! I used a socket and a bar and braced it against the ground. Thought there may be a better...or less dangerous alternative since it's not my car.
Even if I could get it off it still seems like a couldn't get the necessary torque on the bolt to tighten it down as the tranny doesn't lock the engine up.....does that make sense?

It's going to sound really counterintuative... but trust in the fact that the crank bolt will just self tighten itself as you start the car and it starts spinning....

Tighten it as best you can, then it'll be ok from there... OR.... pull the boot under the intercooler where your TC and flex plate are, and find something to jam the TC teeth to the housing, and then torque at will.
