Ingalls Engine Damper
A self-contained elastomeric shock that mounts on brackets between the engine and the chassis. It reduces extreme engine movement and dampens the motion, providing many benefits. The Stiffy was originally intended for the sport compact market, but can be used for some Hot Rod applications if it is applied correctly.
Greatly improved off-the-line acceleration
Reduced wheel hop
Improved vehicle stability
Reduced shock loads on driveline components
Reduced wear on exhaust system joints
Less vibration transmission to the driver compared to polyurethane motor mounts.
Less shock load, compared to torque straps and chains.
Drifting helps reduce shock loads when wheels gain traction.
Reduces motor movement decreases the chance of motor parts rubbing against the hood and frame.

For the price you can't go wrong with this i wanted less movement from the motor and instead of replacing my still good motor mounts this does the job i feel a huge difference when i get on it now. BUY IT

Alright so here's the deal.. I have an 06 Type S and that K20Z1 was tearing up my passenger mount like nobody's business. Lately, the engine has been moving back and forth when I change gears and the vibration at idle with my torn mount is horrible. I installed the the Ingalls Torque Damper a.k.a. "STIFFY" and the back and forth movement and vibration are gone. Idk why these guys are complaining about vibration at idle. If you follow the directions exactly, you're golden. ( those rubber o-rings and their placement are very important for your level of comfort) Guys, this is a good buy. If you want to preserve your OEM mounts, buy this Torwue Damper.

Correction about installation.
The install is simple. There is absolutely no reason to touch your power steering. On the 05-06 you just unbolt the one front engine mount bolt, slide the bracket in place, put the bolt back in and tighten the supplied lock nut on the engine mount stud. This can be done with a basic ratchet and the power steering doesn't interfere at all.

Its not bad for the price,
This was initially supposed to help my motor from moving a bit when i switched gears. It stiffened up the engine quite a bit, and vibrations inside the car are noticeable but nothing too drastic. It did not eliminate wheel hop completely, it will dampen it a bit, but without stiffer mounts, you're going to have wheel hop no matter. It makes the car feel more grounded, and like its getting more power to the wheels. Its a good product, install was pretty easy, just make sure everything is torqued down, and tight.

I own an Acura Rsx Type S. Before i purchased this product, my car would wheel hop, when dropping the clutch in 1st at any more then 3000rpms, shifting from 1st into 2nd at high rpm (7000-8000) and also from 2nd into 3rd in the same rpm band. The installation is difficult, and i highly suggest you have a mechanic do it unless you are familiar with the removal of the power steering line and bleeding that line. Anyway, i have it installed now and it has eliminated the wheel hop from 2nd into 3rd but i still have significant hope peeling out and also from 1st into 2nd. Yes it is overpriced but i have a solution for you all. I highly suggest that the damper also be installed with Club RSX product "ENS-16-1110R" which are the energy suspension engine mount inserts. Combined with this your wheel hop problem will dissappear. Mine did :) They are 27 dollars. A must have with this torque damper if your looking for more results.

Wheel hop reduced but not eliminated.
Wheel hop is definatly reduced, but no where near eliminated. When I first got my 05 rsx type s wheel hop was a huge problem. So violent the faceplate of the stock 6 disc came un attached. I have my torque dampner tightened completely and you definatley notice cabin vibration. Wheel hop is now tameable with feathering of the throttle.

GOOD: This little part is very effective but a bit pricy. I bought it a few months ago, and I can say that it helps decrease the wheel hoping. Besides that i liked the feel of the engine when reving up or shifting on high RPMs(if tighen properly o adjust the fee BAD: The vibration if adjusted to its limit. It was a P.I.T.A to install it because the engine mount was "upside down??" ever since I bought the car. It can be complicated to adjust it too because you will need two big wrenches. p.s: P.I.T.A= pain.in.the.asz

good product and does work
when i installed this it helped smooth out my shifting a bit. and my wheel hop is down but not eliminated. a bit pricey for this lil thing is my only complaint. make sure you tighten everything down!
