In this episode of Intellectual Horsepower, we take a deep dive into the world of harmonic dampers, and more specifically, viscous dampers made by Fluidampr and Vibratech TVD. We sit down with Fluidampr experts Ivan Snyder and Aaron Neyman, as well as engine builder Paul Svinicki of Paul’s High Performance to discuss the details of a component that seems simple on the outside, but there’s a lot more to dampers than you might think.

Normal stock dampers wear out and engine performance upgrades increase naturally occurring harmful crankshaft torsional vibrations. Install a Fluidampr viscous damper to reduce wear on the main bearings and timing gear, achieve more accurate valvetrain operation and lower the risk of crank failure. Unlike rubber based dampers, Fluidampr automatically adapts to any engine modifications and constantly self-tunes in real time to protect across the entire RPM range. Features precision machined and computer balanced components that never need to be tuned or rebuilt.
