Fluidampr® performance viscous dampers are a fully owned product of Vibratech TVD. They are the leading viscous damper in the performance racing industry and can be found on an OEM endurance racing team down to the grassroots level. Professional engine builders install a Fluidampr performance damper as a fundamental building block to help achieve long term durability. Increases in torque and horsepower are often realized as a result of improved efficiency by minimizing torsional vibration. Recently, our friends at, a prominent automotive performance digital publication, discovered just that. They achieved a whopping 12 whp peak gain at 5,600rpm and 19ft-lbs peak gain at 3,650rpm with their Volkswagen Golf R MKVII project car. Fluidampr Test 2

"...the main goal for installing the Fluidampr crank pulley was to lay down a solid foundation to maintain reliability while we embark on the road to extract more power out of our Golf R's powertrain. The solid performance gains we experienced are simply a very welcomed bonus!"┬Ł - Fluidampr Test Dyno Results

High quality performance shops have also had remarkable success with a Fluidampr performance damper on particular Volkswagen and Audi applications. The TSI/TSFI, VR6 and 1.8L turbo engine platforms being three of them.  Please note that each engine configuration is different.  Dyno results and torsional vibration maps will vary.
