    My build date is Dec 03 .... so they do exist


    ....I got to laugh my ass off. The numb nuts on LSxGTO waited for months, had preorder sign up lists, contacted sponsors ... all to see if Ingalls would make a 05/06 specific version.

    I only wish 2 things......one was that the lighting was a little better so the camera showed a little more of that bracket. The second thing was that you showed the next guy exactly what you had to do to that bracket. Did you lay it bend side down and whack it with a hammer to open the angle up on it a bit or did you close the angle up? Either way, thanks for the video and I'll stick it with the other stiffy install.

    It will stop those shakes,and the tourque will get transferred back through driveline,way faster,trust me if it handles that on my 408 twin turbod car 99% of those out there in GTO land will love it ,well worth the money.easy install took me maybe 10 minutes,cost was alil high ,in my opinion and I paid $139 shipped,was going to just fab me a dampner of my own,with all the other stuff I was doing,I decided just to buy one.
