I have a Ingalls engine stiffy that has 150 miles on it. I personally loved it, what a difference, but my wife could not stand it. I can honestly say, it is not for people that do not like to here the engine, because you will, but, from a performance stand point, it helped in everyway. I will put up pics if needed, but you can find pics anywhere. Comes with all hadware and original box and instructions.

Selling price: $125.00 shipped to the 48 states, if you want me to ship it to Canada, it will be $140 shipped.

Thanks
Steve

What do you mean by hearing the engine?

well, the stiffy is a metal to metal link from the whirring engine to the resonating chassis. i can't help but think that Energy Suspension must make something that would allow stiffness w/o continuous metal to metal noise transmitting link. maybe 1 day i'll track down that piece, the missing link.

The Stiffy just makes your engine sound about twice as loud. Now, what a lot of people do(and I tried also) is put a layer or two of dynamat in between the strut mount plate and the strut tower to quiet it back up, I just did not like that due to the ksports studs are short compared to stock, so I did not keep on the dynamat, even though it did help.

No I dont unfortunatly, but just take what your engine sounds like now, and multiply it by 2. Dont get me wrong, the performance aspect is worth it, definately the adjustability of it from soft to hard, shifting is smoother, no wheel hop, feels stronger off the line, just could not stand the wife wining, that made it REALLY loud in the cabin.

This definately fits, both inserts may not, dunno? This is a more direct mount from chassis to motor, for a more solid feel, plus, the mounts are not adjustable. If you read up on rsxclub, a lot of guys run both, I would have it on mine, I miss it, but honestly, with my wife driving it too, when I want to take the impala ss out for the speed fill, I just feel its better to not re-install it.
