    i just picked up a 94 ex coupe (i'll post pics later) and there is a lot of engine flex. the inserts would be a good add on, but the car is bone stock and is going to stay that way.

    should i get the inserts or an engine damper? i'm leaning towards the damper because it's a daily driver and i don't want to feel the added vibration of the inserts.

    it probably wouldn't hurt to do both...the dampers you can get on ebay for pretty cheap...

    $42=energy suspension inserts
    $61=NRG damper

    the extra $20 doesn't really matter. I just don't want the vibration of inserts and ease of install for the damper is good to.

    Well, if your engine is flexing too much, you need to replace your mounts anyway. You stated that the vehicle is remaining stock and you dont want added vibration, so Why not replace them with new stock mounts? It'll be a more expensive, but you will be happy with the results.

    If you slap a damper on a motor with bad mounts, you are still running the associated risks of having bad mounts. Might as well fix it right the first time.
