LOL! I hardly think the manufacturer will openly admit that it is noisy, and vibrates a lot. With that said, I think it can be expected that any engine damper will cause noise and vibration, but damn do they look sweet in the engine bay.

$200 is MSRP. In the sponsored section there is sponsors selling the product. Also can offer discounts.

I have this part and have had it for a while now. The part is nice and does add a nice flare to the motor compartment. I will not lie, it does add some vibration/noise in the cabin. Just like any damper would. But the part along with the brackets are built very well.
