Customer Questions


Does this product come with installation instructions because i tried to look online and they only have a few pictures of the 6MT and i need for the 5AT? I'm not car illiterate but replacing a part with another part is sometimes easier then installing a part that was never there to begin with.


Unfortunately this item does not come with instructions that we are aware of. We suggest finding installation support on the Acurazine forum directly. We found this link which may be helpful:

Q:Do I need the bracket for the 6MT? Or does the damper install without a bracket?

As is stated in the listing, the bracket is added for 5AT cars only. It is not needed for the 6MT model.

    The OEM ETD allows the engine to rock back & forth quite a bit. The benefit of this is that it dampens engine movement impact that is imparted into the cabin. This ETD, on the other hand, imparts direct engine movement but is only noticeable during start-up. You can choose softer inserts or harder inserts (I use harder ver.), both of which are included in the kit. If you want more direct feel/feedback of your 3G TL, this is a worthwhile investment. Made in the USA.

    Install went smooth, I also installed this with XLR8 engine mounts (75A) and I now have zero wheel hop. Car seems to be more planted off the start now.
