I know what you mean bout the hose. I just added some walshers to the mount that holds the hose and lifted it about 1/4 in.

I'm not affiliated with them and I've never purchased from them before. Purchase at your own risk ok?
Anyone have experience buying from here?

I have a solution to fix the rattle that everyone is having with the ETD. install it like the instructions say.

Tighten everything liek you would do

Once everything is tightened loosen the bottom screw/nut just a bit, closest to the pulley. Keep everything still together though. Then tighten the top portion (screw/nut) again to spec. You will see it will tighten more...actually to the correct torque. Then re tighten the bottom portion to spec as well. This got rid of the vibration sound from my engine bay for me! Hope this helps!

what screw/but are you talking about? the one at the top of the engine bay? you cant tighten it without removing everything...

arent you putting tension on it then? the instructions say you should be able to easily remove the bolts. They should slide right out without trouble.

Since I didnt really get a chance to do much work after I took off all the bolts, is it bad to leave the dog bone and that 1 engine mount bolt out for 1-2 days?
Will that damage the other mounts?

Is this the stiffest setting for the ETD?
Why does mine have a gap between the aluminium body and the locking jam nut?

This is not the stiffest. If anything it looks like it's on the softest setting. You have to tighten the middle nut so that it moves towards the aluminum body. There so be no gap there. If you drive with it this way, you risk ruining the torque dampener and stripping the threads.

*grr! can't edit my last post* -- I meant to say "So I should screw all 3 nuts towards the aluminum body as far as they can go for the stiffest setting?"

Like this?

Since the torque damper is limiting the movement of the engine, the energy of the movement will be transferred as vibrations through the frame, causing there to be more engine noise. I like the extra engine noise, it makes the car sound more aggresive
