    Turbo wholesale $147.55 http://www.turbowholesale.com/manufa...ufacturerid=29

    Ultrarev $149.56 http://www.ultrarev.com/product.php?...32|Y|1280|800|

    Cor Sport USA $155 and "Our FREE shipping applies to all the items on our website that are priced with shipping already included." http://www.corsportusa.com/store/cat...facturers_id=4



    I did find it at Summit Racing http://store.summitracing.com/partde...5&autoview=sku ...So all I need to do is print off the $147.55 web page and walk into the store, about a half hour from me, and get a price match. ...so no shipping costs. The only problem is they have a 2/6 shipping date on it right now so maybe finding this in stock may be getting hard to do.

    Answer:

    That other site tried to get enough people to say that they would buy it but Ingalls decided not enough interest.

    Just bought one fron ultra ray and it says it is for 04-06 we'll see. I believe it will help with the wheel hop along with the drag bags.

    Yes I know, but most of the sources only show for the 04, so what is the difference between the 04 and the 05-06. I could not find a reason it would not work. qwkgto I will let you guys know and the air bags have helped, the # for me is 10lbs in both sides.

    Yeah but those items are nowhere close to the stiffy mounting location.
    From the passenger side head to the fender seam.

    Hi was reading and heres what i found on the stiffy shock..
    A self-contained electrometric 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.

    Benefits

    Greatly improved off-the-line acceleration
    Reduced wheel hop
    Improved vehicle stability
    Reduced shock loads on driveline components
    Smoother shifting
    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.

    Specifications

    Overall length (mount to mount) = 7 inches (+/-1/4 inch adjustment)
    Mounting hole size = 10 mm (.3937 … approx. 3/8 inch)
    Maximum stroke = +/-3/8 inch (no preload)
    Preload adjustment = 0 – 3/16 inch (max stroke = +/- inch at max preload)
    Maximum shock load (momentary) = 2000 lbs.
    Maximum continuous load = 500 lbs.
    High quality hardened steel reinforced Teflon Heim joints
    Body: 6061-T6 Aluminum

    Finish: clear silver anodize
    Maximum Recommended HP = 500 with Energy Suspension or Solid Mounts

    ALL Engine Torque Damper Kits are design to install on vehicles with STOCK Engines Only. These Kits are NOT compatible with engine swaps.

    ***Picture may differ slightly from product***

    Fits: 2003-04 Pontiac GTO
    Im reading along and it say 500hp max,,well hope it helps with first 500hp..lol

    I wanted to be able to clean the terminals when needed and also "suspend" it away from any and all metal It is a fraction of the size of the battery and weighs nothing. Perfect to access if needed for aux power/jump start etc. The battery took up all the room you see the canister and that power box takes today. So it is a little more than half the size of the battery....but like I said weighs next to nothing as it is plastic....
