probably cheaper and better if you inject your mounts instead of buying a torque damper if you are going to get a header w/o some kind of flex.

Just because a header has a flex pipe does not mean it is going to leak under all conditions. For example, if the previous owner had mounts in the car then the header will be in mint condition. However, if it was running the oem mounts and the car was driven aggressive, then it could be a possibility to be leaking in the flex pipe area. The Ingals Torque Damper and Power Stick do not eliminate all of the movement from the engine so it is still possible to create a leak in the flex pipe area. If you want to be 100% free of any leaks, i suggest either buying mounts or injecting your oem mounts with the proper material.
