Ques. for Fluid Dampner owners

To the guys who have been running the fluid dampner. Have you noticed any changes (good or bad). Is it worth the money? I looking at preserving my 7.3 (86K on the clock). I'd like to see it go many many miles. I just installed an Amszoil oil bypass system with pre luber. The oil is staying a lot cleaner but it has a strange vibration (hummmmmmmmmmm), but that's another story. Thanks for your fluid dampner input.

I don't have a fluidamper, but have the ATI damper. Its quieter and smoother for sure.

I've run both. Whichever you find cheaper is the one you should buy.

What's this ATI and where is it sold? I've never heard of that brand before.
Thanks for the info. I'm not really looking for performance just more longivity for the engine.
