Ingalls Torque Dampner- aka "THE STIFFY"

I have decided to get rid of some stuff, so I'm starting with the torque dampner. Was installed for a couple months but only run tightened up once or twice, still looks like new, comes with all hardware and if you are local and want to come to me I can help you install it if you need the help.

It is this:

And this is it installed (where it currently is, in my garage):





Looking to get $150 Cash Local pickup

FWIW, a couple engineers and I at work did some vibration tests with this. I would highly recommend this for those of you with hardened oem motor mounts. The reason being the way that the mazda mounts are designed (the mount itself bolts to the frame lower than the point at which it bolts to the engine {this includes the mount arms}) will cause the vibration of the engine to move from where mazda designed (the center / around the eccentric shaft) upwards towards a path of lesser resistance (up towards the UIM). Granted we talk of an extreme case, but there is an opportunity for this upwards vibration to cause the engine to sort of "teeter" and put significant stress on the mounts/bolts/frame. This also explains why mazda uses floating mounts (i.e. filled with oil).

tl:dr = from an engineering perspective, i recommend this to those who have hardened motor mounts.

Interested if you still have it. Also interested in those fender strakes if you've still got the spare black set. I hope this doesn't mean you're selling your 8!
