Engine damper will help you feel a little more connected to the car, but I'm gonna upgrade the engine and gearbox bushings before I resort to a bolt-on engine damper. It just seems like a better idea to me, but it's up to you.
True, I've driven iDiaz's MCS in the canyons and it handles superbly. What a difference an alignment makes! My car is pretty unstable right now because I have yet to get a proper alignment and I never adjusted my front camber

I use an engine damper I think its a good bolt on mod to help you feel connected with the car and to help smooth things out. Plus it's easily reversible!
