Japspeed mate, i think i paid £69 last year. Very good mod and look good under the bonnet also. Car felt much smoother when accelerating too!

murph it dont matter what power your running for them to help

it prevents the engine from moving on the mounts if there tired

thought as much but read elsewhere its only really benefits if your running more power, think I'll add getting one to my list :guiness:

not true, ive had one reduce knock majorly on mine, also its the same as changing the engine mounts less shake from the engine give better performance.
ha ha,if your engine mounts are good thers no need for this muck,the damper is mounted on the suspension turret and coupled with a strut brace leaves the strut mount bolts too short to be safe in most cases resulting in pulled threads,secondly the damper is attached to an engine hoist point with an extension that leaves ittoo weak to take any real torque,bending every time you drop the clutch,now maybe you have a different set up to any of the ones ive seen,ive not seen many serious cars relying on this set up to resist engine torque?
