The Fluidampr viscous torsional damper is an essential component in building a high performance 2.2 Turbo engine.We recommend you read our FAQ on Fluidampr technology to understand why this product is right for you. The last 2.2TT to leave the assembly line in Germany was 1996. By now your Original damper has hairline cracks in the rubber ring which is robbing your engine of horsepower as it is no longer adequate enough to perform the job it was designed to do coupled with the disheartening fact that Audi has discontinued the OEM vibration damper leaving countless to scour the globe for good used units. Say no more to such a tedious task as we introduce the worlds first viscous torsional damper for the 2.2 20 Valve turbo Audi inline-5 engine. When starting this project, we sought the help of global legend Jeff Garner @ Four Ring’s Performance (fastest Audi in the world) who oversaw the design aspect of the project to create a product that will suite the needs of all Audi fans alike.
Special notes (Hardware & Balancing): Install hardware per OEM specifications. 1. The ADU/ABY (and other older inline-5) engines are balanced as a complete rotating assembly. We do not recommend installing this product on a motor currently in a vehicle. The rotating assembly must first be zero balanced and then the Fluidampr can be installed. Failure to follow this instruction will result in potential catastrophic engine failure or at minimum extreme cabin vibrations. Please seek the assistance of Jeff Garner’s engine building services or your local machinist before purchasing.
2. Your purchase includes a 6PK Alternator pulley. If you have a 3B/7A motor you will be converting from a steel v-belt alternator pulley to a 6PK pulley.If you have a ADU/ABY motor you will be converting from a steel 4PK alternator pulley to a 6PK pulley.
