brianlebarron Import/Euro, Testing

Fluidampr® performance are the leading viscous damper in the performance racing industry and can be found on OEM endurance racing teams down to the grassroots level. Professional engine builders install a Fluidampr performance damper as a fundamental building block to help achieve long term durability. Increases in torque and horsepower are often realized as a result of improved efficiency by minimizing torsional vibration. Recently, our friends at, a prominent automotive performance digital publication, discovered just that. They achieved a whopping 12 whp peak gain at 5,600rpm and 19ft-lbs peak gain at 3,650rpm with their Volkswagen Golf R MKVII project car.

Each engine configuration is different.  Dyno results and torsional vibration maps will vary.
