(Based off for of what I understand about this mod it should help) but would this benefit an auto as much? Or at all?

Installed something very similar this weekend. All parts were readily available at local hardware store and took about 10 minutes to put in and tighten up. Cable is 1/8" stainless steel and the part that attaches to the engine brace is just a piece of flat bar with 2 holes that I found in the gate hinge/latch section. Put a double bend in it to clear the bar and also raise the cable away from any cables/wires off the back of the engine.

Haven't been able to take it out and bang through the gears hard yet. Moderate shifting seemed smoother, but will give it a good test and report back in a couple of days :-). Total parts was about $10 though.

patent pending, I'm suing you in the morning if i remember!!

nice job, but i wouldn't put the brace under the strut bar, it needs to go on top.

Curious why it needs to go on top? Not an issue, just have to fabricate a triangular piece that would incorporate both strut bolts. Do you think the 1/8" thickness of the flat bar will throw off the strut geometry too much?

And not patent infringement lol, mine has adjustable tension with a turnbuckle, no wrench required :-).

Thanks,

Glenn

Ya'll think this is a good idea to put extra stress on the intake manifold bolts, which were not intended to help keep the engine still but rather only keep the intake manifold on the block? I think this will cause a failure sooner since you are not letting the engine's movement be stopped by the mounts, rather allowing the first line of defense be the intake manifold held by a cable.

Correct me if I'm misunderstanding this "cable" and why vehicle design engineers have never thought of this in the 100+ years of auto manufacturing.

They're using the engine hoist bracket on the back of the engine to attach the leash, not the manifold.

I used a chain on a longitudinal mounted V8. Tied the exhaust manifold to the subframe. Worked great for the life of the car.

Noted. That would make more sense.

The point of contact is actually the pass side head, this isn't by any means something an engineer would come up with as its a backyard fix for something that could be cured with stiffer engine mounts and a torque damper. This for years has been done with cars that lack the aftermarket support of hardened engine mounts, or for those who want the engine tied down without the constant vibration.

3" custom catback to camaro transverse muffler
AEM SRI
Megan racing transmission mount
Custom Torque damper
Custom grille air scoop
3.91 LSD
Uniq rigid collars
TS shifter bushings

On the way:
Whiteline sways
Magnaflow catback
Poly filled subframe mounts
