SMOOTH IT OVER
THE PUSH AND PULL OF PISTONS AGAINST A CRANKSHAFT THOUSANDS OF TIMES A MINUTE DEMANDS a lot out of one spinning piece of metal. To counteract the resulting torsional vibrations, Fluidampr has released a performance crankshaft damper for the 2015 WRX and 2013+ FR-S/BRZ. This SFI 18.1 certified performance crankshaft damper is a direct bolt-on upgrade for the existing OEM elastomer style harmonic balancer and requires no modifications for installation. Given the SFI rating, the crankshaft damper is thus approved for competition in many racing series and sanctioning bodies. Fluidampr developed and tested this damper to provide performance gains while improving durability, especially on modified engines. MSRP is $389.07.
