OK, how the heck do I install the new impeller on my 06 X2? I lubed it up with the grease that came with the new impeller, finally squeezed it into the pump, but I can't get enough leverage to get it all the way in. Any one have any tricks to offer?

For a vdrive, I think many would say an impeller removal tool is worth its weight in gold. You might try paint can openers.

That's a water based lube, so add some water, pull the kill switch, and spin the engine over for a second to get the pump housing good and slippery.

I've had to lightly tap it to get mine to go back in that last 1/2 to inch.
