This part is made using an engine torque damper, and fabricating brackets so that it can be used, so far, on various Saturn products, namely and chiefly the Ion Redline. See below for applications. If interest is shown, more applications may be addressed. This item is very easy to install, and requires no special tools.

The stock Ion and Redline suffers from terrible wheel hop. There are of course a few solutions. This solution doesn't have the common drawback found in an engine mount stiffening system. There is no noticable extra vibrations in the car, or felt in the steering wheel (best indicator). The stock mounts are not changed, and nothing has to be removed. The unit limits the travel of the engine as it torques back and forth during hard acceleration and shifting, thus making any wheel hop on dry pavement negligible.

There are two versions of the brace thus far. They are as follows:

Installs from the front engine mount to the radiator support at about a 35 degree angle. Applications include the Ion Redline only. A hole is required to be drilled into the radiator support. The radiator support bracket is carried over into Rev.B. [This part will no longer be made, due to a broader application range in Rev.B, and a greater degree of safety. Owners of Rev.A will receive the new bracket for the front engine mount, converting to Rev.B. There is no performance improvement by switching to Rev.B, thus no real "upgrade". It is simply usable on a broader range of vehicles, and is safer to have. After all is converted to Rev.B, this section will be removed.]

Installs from the front engine mount to the passenger side strut tower at about a 10 degree angle. Applications are for all '02 and up (so far) Ions, including Redline, and SL2/SC2 '91-'01. A hole is required to be drilled into the passenger strut tower / wheel well (see pics below). The Redline and '02-'03 Ions, '04-up Ions, and the '91-'01 SL2/SC2 use different front mount brackets, thus for clarity they have seperate and easy designations.
