I was wondering about these for my V36. I had one on my last car which was FWD and it helped eliminate wheel hop along with full poly mounts for the motor/trans.

just wondering did you tighten the damper ends before you installed it?
I have the same one from ebay and the damper arrived "loose" on the round end bit, it's hard to explain but it's the bit at the end of the damper where you can turn, did you do it tight??

Question...did you install only one? I have seen (on other cars) two dampers...one for movement back to front and one for side to side....if any.

Hate to revive an old thread but I was planning on ordering the same torque damper. The parts that I keep finding on eBay seem to not fit my car. Does anyone have a link to the one for an 04 auto sedan?

Thanks in advance.

It's the same for 03-06 afaik, and it's not making a performance difference.

Why? If the engine mounts are toast it's always moving crazy.

I agree about the performance aspect but my thinking is the damper would help a little with the engine movement and will be a lot cheaper and less time costly than replacing the mounts.

I had one of these on my car, and when it broke in half I immediately noticed something was wrong and there was way more movement. I didn't fix it, and 6 months later I had a completely torn engine mount. The damper would have restricted the motion enough to prevent damage to the mount.
Could also try injecting your stock fluid filled mounts with polyurethane!
