Fluidampr

Is a Fluidampr harmonic dampner worth the money. Can you actually notice a difference? Thanks

Also curious
Hp gain probably isn't worth it, but if it makes your engine last longer would be worth it.
Anybody have any experience.

It made a noticeable difference for mine. I tow quite a bit and run stock for quite a bit of the time, but otherwise if you are looking to go fast, it is likely to break your LPOP gears.

From the research I've done and everything I've read on the fourms its OK on a stock truck, but the mod trucks have had issues with them, that they say were caused by the dampner. None were actually proven exactly, but they went back to stock dampner and issues disappeared. Search for it on here...

Agree, on a stock truck it would be fine, also reading alot being Im on 4 different forums the damper on a modified truck seems to cause problems later down the road. Just from what I read nothing 100%
