Designed just for mildly built Ford - Streetdampr harmonic dampers use silicone fluid in a sealed, laser-welded housing to control crankshaft vibration at all engine rpm, just like their race-ready brothers. That means more accurate spark and valve timing and reduced bearing and valvetrain wear. About the only difference between the Streetdampr and Fluidampr is that the Streetdamprs are not SFI-approved for racing.
- When should I upgrade from Streetdampr to Fluidampr?
- Can I powder coat my Streetdampr or Fluidampr?
- When should a street enthusiast consider replacing his stock damper?
If you decide to competitively race your Streetdampr equipped car. Be aware, most race sanction organizations require the harmonic balancer to meet SFI 18.1 specifications. While a Streetdampr is manufactured and functions to the same high standards as a Fluidampr, it does not receive official SFI 18.1 testing, marking or certificate necessary to pass race tech inspection. This is done to keep Streetdampr an economical option for non-race restoration projects and street rods.
