Fluidampr Harmonic Fluid Dampers
A good aftermarket high performance crankshaft damper protects your crank. Horschel Motorsports' Fluidampr is in a class all by itself because of the over 70 years of viscous damper engineering experience on hand. The Viscous crankshaft dampers are designed to provide maximum control of all the engine harmonic vibrations, regardless of the rpm at which they occur and regardless of the crankshaft's natural frequency. The viscous damper vibration control translates to the maximum protection of the crank, main bearings, engine related components and more consistent power output. Also, Fluidampr is maintenance and repair free. Fluidampr is active in both race and street applications because it is a viscous damper that controls the destructive engine vibrations at all RPM's and power levels.
The best engine dampers on the market are manufactured in the U.S.A. by Horschel Motorsports, an ISO 9001:2000 certified facility. Horschel Motorsports is continuing the tradition that started in 1946 when the first viscous damper was invented. Over 4 million viscous dampers have been made for heavy-duty diesel, drag car, stock car, street machine, race boat and other high performance engines.
Why your engine needs a crankshaft damper:
Each time the air/fuel mixture inside a cylinder is ignited, the combustion that occurs creates a torque spike that is applied to the crankshaft through the piston and rod. This torque spike is so severe that it not only turns the crankshaft, it twists the crankshaft ahead of its regular rotation and then the crankshaft rebounds. This twisting action is known as torsional vibration. When these torque spikes and forces get into phase with the natural frequency, critical torsional harmonic vibrations occur and can be severely destructive to the bearings and the crankshaft. Dampers are designed to control those destructive waves.
A new Fluidampr crankshaft damper on your diesel truck will not only protect your engine from destructive torsional vibrations but will also increase TORQUE & HORSEPOWER. High performance diesel engines running chips and programmers are exceptionally vulnerable to torsional vibrations. A Fluidampr viscous damper controls torsional vibrations far better than the stock damper.
Save your crank & more by installing a new Fluidampr today. Fluidampr® vibration dampers have been tested on both stock and high performance tuned diesel trucks. Dynamometer tests have proven consistent increases in horsepower and torque in the Chevrolet, Dodge, Ford, General Motors, Toyota, Honda, Subaru, Lexus, Toyota, Acura and Mitsubishi applications.
