I'll answer your question about the strut bars. I have a front and rear bar and it makes one hell of a difference. The car is MUCH more stiff than it ever was. You don't realize just how much the car flexes until you get the bars. For the price, it's really worth it.
I have heard similar things about the engine damper.
