shorttrack I repeat ,DO NOT MAKE YOUR LEACH OR ENGINE TORQUE DAMPERS TENSION TIGHT .A slightly snug is all that is needed,just get the slack out .watch for when the engine starts to moves out of it's relaxed position during tightening of engine anti torque device and that is the proper '' eye balling method '' .

If using a Dial 1 inch indicator and a mag base you would want a small pre-load of .030'' that is it .Meaning when you tightened the leach or in my case the engine torque damper ,the engine should be pulled to the driver's side by .030 of and inch .Not tight at all and barely snug .I run a true fully adjustable race engine torque damper from the strut bracket to the front engine lift bracket .

br2 too tight isn't good for your engine mounts.
just watch for stretching after 100 miles or so.

Red Raspberry I'd say tight when first installed but it will stretch. Then with the car idling tighten it so it is just about taken up all the slack. Any tighter really doesn't help but will transmit more vibration.

rjscott2005 I just installed one on my 2015 Ultimate 3.8 AT. I haven't really tightened it beyond being fairly taught. I feel like this thing works. I'm gonna experiment with different tightness and see what happens.

tj2806 I was skeptical that a small metal rope would have any perceivable impact but you can really feel it in the shifts.

We get zero engine movement with our CP-E motor mounts on Project Hoondy no matter how hard we rev up the engine.

A better combo upgrade with the CP-E motor mounts would be to continue firming up the drive-line towards the back of the car. A firmer transmission mount and especially upgrading to a fourth differential mount would continue to improve the car's performance characteristics under hard driving.


Upgraded motor mounts or an engine leash combined with a firmer trans mount and the fourth diff mount are basically requirements for hard driving on the Genesis Coupe. It just won't stand up to rough treatment with the OEM setup.

Good luck, happy tuning!

If you have an automatic, with the engine running, car in gear and your foot firmly on the brake; rev the engine and see how much it moves. With the 4 cylinder you can just push on the drivers side of the motor and see how much it moves.

No matter what you have for mounts the leash will help as it limits how much load gets applied to them. On my car after getting the engine leash on the back of the motor, extra rear diff bushing and better trans mount, I could feel the through the shifter, the drive train will "dip" on a fast hard shift. I hope the front leash will stop this.

Red Raspberry Made one for the front of the 2L. That OE lifting bracket is pretty flimsy though.

Thanks. They are on back order still; having a problem getting the brackets cut, should be shipping soon.

Red Raspberry Actually the leash will fully support the "added" load from torque. You want just enough slack so there is no transmission of noise but not so much there is a lot of travel so excess movement caused by inertia of the engine weight is at a minimum.

I dont think the leash is supposed to fully support the torque at WOT, the motor mounts still have to do their jobs, if your hard enough on them i suppose you could still dammage the mounts but the engine leash definetly takes away some of the load and IMHO makes traction to the rear wheels, or lack therof, much more predictable. I dont see how the leash could do any harm unless you were to over tighten it.
