...Hey John, nice pics and writeup. When you modified, did you just "extend" the centers to the correct SVT bolthole width? And "IF " one was to flip the stiffy 180* would you beable to adjust tension without having to remove coolant tank??

.... Good job....worth 2 attaboys....

I would like to thank John for the review. Ingalls will not be making a Svt bracket anytime soon. The bracket is easy to modify if you know your way around a shop...and if not a local muffler shop would weld up the old holes and a drill press will drill your new holes. The main thing to remember if you modify the bracket keep them parallel! The kit was sent out to several Svt and non svt owners. There will be reviews on several sites with cars ranging from stock power to almost 400whp! This will show you guys all the benefits the stiffy will give you at certain power levels. All kits sent out were sent out with no stipulations John could have posted what ever his views were. As you can see John was very happy.

Having to modify a freshly purchased bracket would definitely be a deal killer for me.
I'm not sure it's a majority that feel the same way, but I'll bet it's a good amount.

And yes, I could do all that in my shop at home.

03OrangeSVT;
I'm anxious to hear your long term review/results a couple thousand miles down the road.

I do have a couple questions:
1) How's the vibration at idle?
2) Do you have to nix the cam cover to install it?

One thing we are checking the length of Johns ETD right now. If the length is too long we will come up with a solution for John so his ETD will last for a long time. When the ETD is extended past a certain length it looses some of it strength. If length is an issue we will post up the solution for the Svt owner who do want to modify the bracket.

One more thing.... what about just changing to a ZX3 passengers side mount??? any try this yet?

If you could use a ZX3 mount then there would be no need to modify the bracket.... but as of right now if you want a Stiffy you will have to mod the bracket otherwise it will NOT fit.

John yes a longer heim would work just fine. The main thing is we need the distance between the to adjusting nuts to be no more than 15mm for the soft setting and no closer than 10mm for the stiff setting

Thast what I was thinking, the longer heim would let me get everything back into spec.

If the ZX3 mount works in place of the Svt mount please let me know so I can put that in the instructions and application guide. Thanks

After looking at what I have done I have came to the conclusion that if I had offset the holes about an inch TOWARDS the back of the motor then the proper length between the to ETD mounting holes would have been closer to specs which in turn means I would not have needed to extend the ETD as much as I did.
Hey john, looking at your 1st pic where do you get the "inch" on the bracket to offset? would you add metal?
