Fluid Damper?

Is there any performance gain out of changing the Fluid Damper?

wow that sounds like they took fluidampr and put their name on it. I have afluidampr on my truck. I cannot tell a difference in actual performance but the fluidampr is almost twice the size of the stock balancer, plus being filled with fluid it does dampen the vibrations better then the stock which IIRC is just a rubber bushing style.

John you are correct the Bullydog product is just a fluidampner. You want see any peformance affects, but your engine will be extrenally balanced much better, which in turn is much better on bearings. It's more of a longevity item. They do make a huge difference over stock.

Most of the vendors here have them at a very good price. I would also check with ITP diesel. I think Dennis has a great price on them.

Can you shoot me a PM with a cost of one of these? is it just like swaping aftermarket pullets on a car?

on the 7.3 the balancer is just like a gasser. One HUGE (15/16 head size I think) bolt that holds it on then press fit on and off and retorque to an ungodly 250 FT LBs IIRC. Also you'll need a puller to remove the old one and I found it easier to remove the fan clutch cause it was right in the way.
