How is it going to wreck your engine mounts? By taking the stress off of them? And I don't know what kind of big block, torque monster you have under the hood, but my little 3.0 doesn't have enough torque to rip the sub frame off. If anything, the chain or hardware on the chain would snap before the sub frame. And how is it a waste of money if the project costs less than $5?

IMO it's well worth the $5 you pay for it, and it's a good way to kill a couple hours when you're bored.
A couple hours?
WTF are you doing when installing this that takes a couple hours? :uhoh2:

a "torque strap" is like replacing your shocks with blocks of wood.
Serious drag racers use SOLID steel motor mounts to inhibit motor movement. There's a significant torque loss when the engine moves around. The chain helps transfer that torque to the wheels instead of losing it to motor movement. It's not that bad, I guess it just depends on how you like to drive.
