Hi, I am new to this forum. I usually post in other forum. This is a review I posted in other forum I would like to share. I dont work for Ingalls. They use my tc as a test car. Please feel free to ask any questions.
Ingalls finally released their Engine Torque Damper (E.T.D.). They used 2 vehicles and here are the results:
Vehicle owner 1 (my self): on the first test I was not happy about it because it made alot of noise in my car. But I did like the performance aspect of it. I can feel better launch and I dont feel engine vibration at all on my steering wheel when I drive or idle. When I gun it, my car doesnt do wheel hop. It was either go or constant squeeling tire noise. None of those eeek eeek eek squeeling noise.. Its alike eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek. (understand? lol) Then they decided to put dynamat between the bracket and the strut tower and got really good result. They have reduced the noise tremendously. I only hear it on 1st and 2nd gear and not as loud. I hear it half way at 3rd gear. I hardly ever hear it on 4th or 5th gear.
Vehicle owner 2 (based on what ingalls told me): He liked the performance and it doesnt make any noise (without the dynamat). This is either because it really doesnt make noise or he is just not as picky as I am.
The kit will NOT come with dynamat. Ingalls does recommend to install it with dynamat. The kit will also work with your sway bar. If for some reason it doesnt, I am pretty sure the place where you buy it or Ingalls them self will work something out. If you have any questions, just pm me. NO DRILLING REQUIRED. I honestly do not know how much these kits will sell. I dont think it will be as high as the price they posted on their website.
Actual product might look different a little. This is the prototype
Dynamat with tape on the edge
rubber rings everywhere
How its mounted to the engine.. and look.. another rubber ring!
