Thumbs down Fluidampr Install

Ok guys I finally got my 6.7 Fluidampr installed. Install was pretty darn easy, just loosening up the shroud and a little manipulating and its in. Use loc tite also. One thing about it, I think my Valair clutch chatter is actually louder. Not kidding either, it's actually louder. Complete waste of money, for me at least.

My opinioin, DO NOT waste your time and money on it. Save your 400$ and get something else, you stock one is just fine.

As for me....

those are for low rpm stationary engines. under 1000 rpm.

ati is the only good balancer out there for canceling engine harmonics.

I ran fluidampeners one season on my stock car motors and broke 3 crank snouts off...

fluidampener like k/n air filters survive and thrive due to a lot of advertising if you read it enough times youll believe it.

I went to the chassis dyno with my k/n dirty, clean and oiled and paper and made 20 hp extra with the paper. I didnt test a new kn maybe thats the only good one and my two were either too dirty or too oily? either way I run 406 -412 motors with a tiny carb as a restrictor and need all I can get. kn hurt my power more than any thing ive dynoed yet.

Also my carb was allways dirty or oily or both.

Took it for a 20 mile drive thinking it just needed to be ran for a while to have the viscous fluid warm up. Nope. Still loud as before.
Anyone with one have different results. I'm so pi$$ed.

It says to torque to 30 ft/lb. I tell what, the stock one was way higher than that.
