The Fluidampr Viscous Harmonic Damper product replacement line covers the 1982 to 2018 versions of the Chevy and GM diesel engines.
These replacement torsional vibration dampers are available for the following GM diesel engines
Fluidampr Chevy GM Duramax Diesel Dampers are ideal for everyone looking for a replacement engine damper for a stock motor to the individual looking for a full-blown competition motor harmonic damper. The standard stock damper is considered a wear item and diesel engine performance upgrades increase the naturally occurring characteristics of harmful crankshaft torsional vibrations. By installing a Fluidampr viscous damper on your Powerstroke diesel engine, you will reduce wear on the main bearings and timing gear, achieve more accurate valve train operation and lower the risk of crank failure. Unlike the OEM rubber based dampers, A Fluidampr Harmonic Balancer automatically adapts to your modifications, then continuously self-tunes in real-time to optimize damping at both peak levels and across a broad changing frequency range throughout the engine's entire operating range. A Fluidampr Torsional Vibration Damper features precision-machined computer balanced components. Fluidampr torsional vibration dampers for the Duramax engines never need to be tuned or rebuilt. Fluidampr is the selected damper of Diesel Motorsports Enthusiast and Racer. These Duramax engine harmonic dampers are SFI Approved and are constructed in an ISO 9001 Certified Facility located in New York State.
Each time the air/fuel mixture inside a cylinder is ignited, the combustion that occurs creates a torque spike that is applied to the crankshaft through the piston and rod. This torque spike is so severe that it not only turns the crankshaft, it twists the crankshaft ahead of its regular rotation, and then the crankshaft rebounds. This twisting action is known as torsional vibration. When these torque spikes and forces get into phase with the natural frequency, critical torsional harmonic vibrations occur and can be severely destructive to the bearings and the crankshaft. Fluidampr Chevy / GM Duramax Harmonic Dampers are designed to control these destructive torsional vibrations.
The Chevrolet 6.2L and 6.5L diesel engines were built with Dampers that utilize elastomeric rubber rings to control the destructive torsional vibrations. The OEM Dampers' performance degrades with age, heat, and duty cycles. This is the reason why you need a new viscous damper for your engine. The engine produces these destructive torsional vibration waves with each and every power stroke. Your OEM damper is only able to control torsional vibrations in a narrow predetermined vibration frequency bandwidth and RPM level. When you make a performance enhancement to a stock engine to increase horsepower and torque, the OEM rubber damper cannot adapt to this change, and your motor is now susceptible to damage. The installation of a Fluidampr Viscous Damper provides complete protection of your motor at all power levels and engine RPMs.
A new Fluidampr on your diesel truck will not only protect your engine from destructive torsional vibrations but will also increase TORQUE & HORSEPOWER. High-performance diesel engines running chips and programmers are exceptionally vulnerable to torsional vibrations. Save your crank & more by installing a new Fluidampr today.
