It helps to reduce crankshaft vibrations and is more balanced than stock harmonic balancer and is said to pro long motor and bearing life

Yeah, its a bit of money for something that doesn't really do anything like make more power or extend your oil intervals... Its definitely worth it though!

Unfortuneatly, fluid dampners also get a bad wrap for messing up lpop gears. I am unsure of the details but this is what I read, a lot, while I was searching for info. some say there is no way you can relate the two others say there is a direct relation.

Yeah, I read that too, and I should point out that these were high HP racing trucks with NOS... The thing about me that has me scratching my head is that the way they would explain the LPOP gears going out would only be at the VERY end of the track where you go from WOT to nothing... Even the minor amount of oil pressure already in the lines would still be enough for you to make it off the track and back to the staging lanes. Most that blame the FD for breaking the gears came within the first 1/8th mile or so where the pressures are (relatively) constant.
