Fluidampr Releases Two New Performance Dampers

Fluidampr Releases Two New Performance Dampers


Scion FR-S / Subaru BRZ and Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X owners can now benefit from a Fluidampr crankshaft damper.  The premium viscous style damper upgrade creates a long lasting foundation for durability and performance by protecting against a broad range of destructive crankshaft torsional vibrations.    Both new Fluidampr performance dampers were developed under the ISO 9001:2008 Design and Development certified standards set by parent company, Vibratech TVD, a torsional vibration solutions provider to OEM powertrain manufacturers.   



Fitment applications and product development test results* are: 

• 01: 2013+ Scion FR-S / Subaru BRZ / Toyota GT86 equipped with 2.0L FA20 (Subaru) / 4U-GSE (Toyota) engine.  Also fits 2015 Subaru Impreza WRX.  Testing revealed consistent performance gains above 4000rpm compared to both an OEM tuned elastomer crank pulley and a lightweight crank pulley.  The lightweight pulley tested provided no torsional vibration protection and left internal components susceptible to potentially destructive high frequency vibration between 5,000 – 7,000rpm.

• 01: 2008 – 2015 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X equipped with 2.0L 4B11/T MIVEC engine.  Tested and delivered up to 70% overall greater crankshaft torsional vibration control above the OE tuned elastomer style harmonic balancer on a near stock engine.  Simultaneous testing indicated that the improved efficiency yielded average gains of 2 wheel-horsepower and 2lb-ft torque on a chassis dyno.  Larger horsepower and torque increases due to adding a Fluidampr are expected as additional performance modifications are added.

It is recommended to upgrade the stock elastomer style crankshaft damper to a Fluidampr performance damper during the early stages of engine modifications for long term optimum performance and durability.  As shown above, even near stock, a Fluidampr performance damper is beneficial.  The broad frequency range protection a Fluidampr performance damper provides allows for future engine upgrades without the need for a costly damper re-tune or replacement. 



Each new Fluidampr performance damper is a direct OEM replacement and features a three bolt, pre-drilled interface for accessory drives or dry sump systems.  Constructed from high tensile steel, components are precision CNC machined and high speed computer balanced during manufacturing.  Finished in a corrosion resistant black zinc chromate finish and engraved timing mark.  SFI 18.1 certified for professional motorsports.  Made in USA.
