if you use a torque dampener, wouldn't you be tearing through oem engine mounts quickly?

It should help your mounts.

This is designed to reduce wear on mounts by helping to keep the motor from "torquing" during hard acceleration.

Not sure how long it will last but don't anticipate it ending in the next couple of weeks.

Ive been running a TD in my 4 cylinder for a few months now and it does make a difference. I cant say what effect its had on the monuts since I never really looked at them, but the car is much more responsive because of the decrease in the motor torquing back.

Since my stock mounts are still good I think I'll be getting this instead of the Innovative mounts. It seems like the perfect solution for untorn stock mounts. Good stuff!!!

What does this actually do? Will I notice a difference? I have a 2005 v6 auto with intake, jpipe, and soon to be exhaust. Thanks

Posted this question in a different thread, but can't seem to find it now. What is the torque dampener installation difficulty?

I dont try to race or burn out at the sight of a green light. Call me old but I save more on gas. Will this help me? Or is it just something for hard driving?

This item is mostly for hard acceleration to dampen engine torque. So probably not.

Oh and I am tempted to call you old but I won't.

Darn it, my strut bar is mouted on that post already. So I would have to lift the strut bar up and slide this underneath? Wouldn't that make my sturt bar slanted (maybe if I stick washers under the other side......)?

Unfortunately, this will not work if you already have a strut bar.

Wait a second, does that apply to the stock 6-speed strut bar too or just aftermarket strut bars?

I've been trying to figure this out as well. If you study the pictures, it looks like there is a strut bar there. Then if you read the directions available on their website, it mentions specificlly mounting the bracket underneath the strut bar.

No disrespect, Peter, but you and Ingalls need to sort this out because we've been aiting a long time for this and it's pretty crapy it wouldn't fit on a 6MT which needs it the most.

looks like it goes right underneath it.... no? Actually nvm, thats the stock strut that attaches to the frame, an after market strut uses the bolts the dampner uses, so it would sit awkwardly.

I don't know why some of you guys are dying to install this item, because i realy feel that it won't make that difference to our cars.

It does make a difference.

Heres mine:


Im a 4 cylinder with the v6 6 speed strut bar and a some what custom TD, but its the same as the one that you guys are going to buy from Ingalls for the most part. I put it on top of the strut bar cause the thought of an uneven strut bar was un appealing to me. I believe that I can even pair the V6 strut bar with the Neuspeed bar still, so I dont think you guys with certain strut bars have to worry so much.

As a matter of fact you should answer my question not to reverse my question, because the one who invented it should tell us what difference could it make, but i think if it is going to help sure it won't help in improving the performance, vibration maybe.

I think you're talking out of your a55, hamoudi. I've encountered your posts before and you make the least sense out of all the members on this site. 99% of the time you have no idea what the hell you're talking about. Unless you have proof that it doesn't work then all you're doing is bashing something that you really have no authority to chime in on. Based on other member's experiences with torque dampers it's proven to work with minimal vibration in everyday driving since it's only coming into play when really hammering on the gas pedal. I'd imagine it would be even more effective on a V6 and that's why I'm about to order it. Unless you have something constructive to say don't say anything at all because you make yourself look dumber and dumber every time you post something like this.

Well my friend you said it ( I'm about to order torque dumber) you should not push it all the way because we are trying to understand what dumb people like you say.

I just want a damn answer on how it fits with the OEM 6MT strut brace. Is that so hard?

I'm trying to get an answer on that as well, but then you get hamoudi, who cant write a clear sentence to save his life, chiming in with nonsense and the thread gets off track. He doesn't even have a V6 so technically he's in the wrong section anyway, but he chooses to ignore that fact over and over and distracts those who want real answers from getting them.

So, OP, for those who have a 6MT with the stock strut bar, will this torque damper fit or not? If so does the torque damper bracket go on top or underneath the stock strut bar?

LOL! Hilarious! I cant provide a solid answer for you but I know Kai(Kschwiggy) had a NRG TQ damper on his V6 6 speed. He may have had it in a custom location though due to his new custom Smalser tq damper. Check with him or Paul(NVA-AV6) and they'll give you a solid answer.
