    DIY: Ingalls Stiffy™ Adjustable Engine Torque Damper for 2002-2005 Honda Civic Si (93022)

    Applicable Years: 02-05 Civic

    Difficulty: 1 out of 5

    Estimated Time: 30mins

    Kit Contents:
    [​IMG]

    Tools Needed:

    • Ingalls Stiffy™ part # 93022
    • 14, 15, 17 mm sockets and open-face wrenches
    • Adjustable wrench

    Installation:

    Under the hood remove the two inside 14mm nuts that secure the passenger shock.
    [​IMG]

    Install the Chassis Mounting Bracket and tighten down the nuts.
    [​IMG]

    Remove the gold colored nut closest to the front bumper using a 17 mm socket.
    [​IMG]

    Place the 12mm washer on top of the nut on the stud closest to the firewall.
    [​IMG]

    Install the Engine Mounting Bracket and tighten down using the stock nut (17mm socket) for the front stud and the supplied nut using a 19mm socket.
    [​IMG]

    Install the Stiffy™ onto the Chassis Mounting Bracket using the supplied hardware using a 15mm socket and 17mm open-face wrench.
    [​IMG]

    The supplied o-ring is placed between the Stiffy and washer, this helps dampen road noise "feel" that can be transferred through the assembly.
    [​IMG]

    Mount the Stiffy™ to the Engine Mounting Bracket using a 15mm socket and 17mm open-face wrench. Be sure to install the washer and o-ring in the same order as above.
    [​IMG]

    That's it, your done. This is how it should look when complete.
    [​IMG]

    Product Review:

    After installing the Ingalls Stiffy™ Engine Torque Damper you can immediately notice the "stiffer" feel during start up since the motor doesn't "rock" as much. On the road you'll notice it greatly reduces wheel-hop during launches and torque-steer when running out your gears. Shifts are more precise while it does add a bit more "engine-noise" inside the cabin. The adjustable feature allows the assembly to be tuned and pre-loaded for racing and street applications.

    Big thanks to Rob over at Ingalls www.ingallseng.com

    If any clubcivic members have any ?'s about our products please feel free to email me directly..

    robs@ingallseng.com

    also here's a link to the product on our site..

    http://www.ingallseng.com/parts/93022.htm

    it has instruction on how to install(evethough the review is personally better than the instructions) and it has a how to adjust the damper settings instructions..

    These units are factory adjusted at 16mm which is on the softer side..if you want it on the a stiffest setting that is a 10mm..

    I have one on my s/c'd 04 si and swear by it.. I have it on the hardest setting which vibrates the car a litle but I also have the esmm's that add to that.. I HIGHLY recommend the damper inconjuction with motor mounts.

    The damper takes care of he majority of engine movement from front to back(accel and decel) and the motor mounts take care of side to side movemnet(turning etc)

    Yes they do fit the B-Series swaps --- if you used the integra drivers side mount use the Integra dampener here: http://www.corsportusa.com/store/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=29&products_id=250 --- if you used the civic drivers side mount use the appropriate year civic here:
    ek: http://www.corsportusa.com/store/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=29&products_id=30
    or here for the eg: http://www.corsportusa.com/store/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=29&products_id=34

    As a vendor here check out all our Ingalls ETD's for sale and keep an eye out for our new sales thread later today.

    This is definatly on my summer to-do list. I can't wait to get rid of some wheel hop. It aggravated me for 3 years while I had my '02 Si.

    I have an 04' with a jrsc that had crazy wheel hop and torque steer.. Now the Ingalls damper and esmm's definately get rid of most of it..better shifting since the tranny is more rigid..

    mines the silver one..

    Actually, the FG2 has a dog bone style dampener built in from the factory --- I know its not high on Ingalls list of cars to make one for.

    Yep, they did their best to make that the "unmodifiable" civic.

    Short rams lose power, exhausts are sketchy at best, the ecu, etc.

    is there a new version that fits 2001-2005 civic EX with abs? the one you have now doesn't clear the abs box but fits fine on the DX/LX.

    We got a call about this Friday --- Rob from Ingalls is working on a solution ... not sure what it will be yet, but I will let everyone know when they figure something out.

    Thanks.
