:cheers: Thanks for posting that up, Ray. I was just kickin myself in the seat a the pants for not gettin my pics posted up.

I got the engine cover back on with a little shave from my Makita.

Well, it's off for another road test! :shiftdrive:

But, seriously, folks...

I'm running a n/a mostly stock auto trans. here, so I wasn't expecting any perf. 'gains' per se....givesa more linear shift feeling for me. For folks with m/t & f/i, this'll keep the motor from 'torquing over', allowing more direct transfer of power to the wheels...should that be a problem.

But......SHINY... :irock:

Thats great for folks that have the OEM strut bar and intake manifold. Is there a way to mount to other than the way in the pic?

Our first shipment of engine dampers just arrived for the 350Z and the G35.  I had a chance to install one on Lionkiller's car, here's some photos:

Two problems with that damper.

1:) bolts to stock strut bar bracket - no good for guys running crawfords or the coming aps plenums.
2:) Why would you connect to the plenum on the engine side. IMO that is a terrible place to mount anything. Those bolts are to be torque to 44-61 in/lbs of torque. That can't be very secure and as a result, probably doesn't do much.

I want to see what it looks like with the cover on.

Chris
Yeah, does anyone happen to have a photo available of the Weapon*R engine torque damper installed with the engine cover back on? I'd like to see just how much the cover needs to be shaved with my trusty dremel tool. :helpsmilie:

Thanks,
Frank
