It's a mass damper to soak up NVH.

Had to remove mine to install the intercooler.

I also took out my mass damper, It really doesn't serve a good purpose, only adding a bit of weight. I was surprised at how heavy that thing was. Probably at least 15 lbs....

NVH = Noise Vibration Harshness.

Motor companies spend ass loads of money trying to get the NVH as low as they can in their cars. People seem to think that cars that vibrate and sound like tractors aren't very good.

So it makes the car quieter by reducing vibration? And by removeing this it would make it louder. I surprised all the ricetuning people haven't discovered this mod. :hehehe:
