Default Engine Torque Dampener?

Would it make a difference on a D17a1 (04 civic lx sedan)? Anyone have one on their engine? Can I see a picture of it?

So it would be a total waste of 200 bucks, then.... would you even feel a difference?

its just something for you to buy, so your miney can line someone elses pockets, will it help yes, but its a band aid solution, but if your engine moves around that much, get stiffer mounts to fix the problem

i heard it works pretty well, im actually thinking of buying it. I think it would def. be a better deal to spend a little more on it instead of motor mounts or a cheap e-bay thing, cuz 1-its adjustable (so u can tighten it or have it looser for everyday driving) and 2-it looks bad-***! i saw a pick of 1 on a EX..looking at the engine w/hood poped its on right sid above pullies..

you only need those if you're making serious power. seriously. on that weak d17a1 your engine torques very little. you will feel no difference.
