In order to ensure that your engine's harmonic balancer or harmonic damper is locked into place, KLM performance recommends the use of these ultra-strong ARP Harmonic Damper Bols and Bolt Kits. As the engines crankshaft flexes and twists, the harmonic balancer is absorbing incredible amounts of kinetic energy. To ensure that the harmonic damper is locked in position, Automotive Racing Products developed this application specific ultra strong 200,000 psi bolts that let you exert maximum clamping force.
Your OEM damper is are tuned for maximum effectiveness with a stock rotating assembly when it's spinning at low rpm's. When the pistons, connecting rods, or crankshaft are changed or modified, or normal rpm range is increased, the effectiveness of a stock damper is reduced. If you have done any engine modifications which alter power output or RPM range changes now is the time to install a Fluidmapr Sport Compact viscous harmonic damper.
A High Performance aftermarket crank damper protects your crank from torsional vibrations. Fluidampr is in a class all by itself, because it is designed to provide maximum control of all engine harmonic vibrations, regardless of the rpm at which they occur and regardless of the crankshaft's natural frequency. This translates to the highest protection of the crank, main bearings, related engine components and more consistent power output. Also, Fluidampr is maintenance and repair free. Fluidampr is effective on both race and street applications.
