How's the installation for this mod?Just wondering if anyone replaced there upper torque mount? I have a 1.5 and just installed the torque mount from the 2.0 mt. Been hearing good things about the results. Just wanting to know what I M supposed to torque the two bolts to? Thanks for the help
Hi. I didn’t notice any added roughness during idle. The change is great. It’s crazy how swapping that peice made a huge difference. Now when I take off from a stop it is flat and just pulls. It’s the best mod for the price.Interesting mod. Thanks for sharing. Do you notice any increased toughness during idle? Since the accord 1.5T doesn’t have a balance shaft like the 2.0T.
It’s not a major change to the car. You are simply stiffening the engine movement. It will not change any other aspect. Remember the 2.0 comes with this which is attached to the same body. It’s not going to adversely effect any other aspects. However the change is great52 Ft-Lbs (recorded for posterity).
Are all the potential negatives known?
Vibration? (says no above).
Warranty on the car?
I'm having real trouble figuring out what the dealer would claim affects the warranty if something goes wrong.It’s not a major change to the car. You are simply stiffening the engine movement.

That's not the issue. The issue is I make a claim because y broke. (Let's say the turbo).Lol. I never put that much thought and worry into this kind of stuff. I know enough about cars to know what will and will not cause damage.
You can say that about any situation. Like if you change your own oil a dealer can say you caused some damage since they have no record of service. I have had this happen. I just enjoy the car and live life. 👍🏻That's not the issue. The issue is I make a claim because y broke. (Let's say the turbo).Lol. I never put that much thought and worry into this kind of stuff.

Yeah I wouldn’t think that much about it. Same goes for if you change your own oil. They can say you didn’t do it right. They can always make a claim. I don’t worry about that stuff and enjoy the car 👍🏻

The dealer says, "But you changed the torque doo-hickey."
"So what? Has nothing to do with it."
"Says you. In our opinion it caused the turbo to die. That'll be $1555.66 with tax please."
"That's BS! I'll see you in court!"
And I'd lose because it would never end and I'd have to produce an expert and they would produce three. (For that matter I don't know if small claims court here allows the claimant to produce an expert and/or if those costs can be added to the case...).
This is the sort of crap I worry about. Maybe I'm insecure.
I may keep in touch with you about this. I'm planning on upgrading to hasports 62A's. I remember an instagram member upgraded his 1.5T upper mount to a 2.0T upper mount. I can't remember off the top of my head what transmission he has but he reported minimal increase. Something you may look into.I did some reading last night after this thread and specifically noted all the NVH. Not for me... I see this being useful on a race car. Mine runs plenty good with the intake, RSB, lighter wheels and JB4 as a daily driver, can't justify potentially making the above worse... It drives and handles so good, I may not do anything else to it other than cosmetics.
