Fluidampr viscous torsional dampers are an essential component in building a high performance or high revving ABA 8V engine.We recommend you read our FAQ on Fluidampr technology to understand why this product is right for you. This is a custom application where we take the Fluidampr 551201 “1.8T” unit and modify it for fitment on an old school VW827 8 valve engine commonly referred to as the “ABA”.There is also an option that will allow you to keep the power but it requires spacing out the power steering pulley 6mm. The spacer is included when you select that option.
Special Notes: Power Steering Drive
The power steering drive allows you retain your Power steering set up that is mounted under your A/C Compressor. Because the Fluidampr is substantially thicker than the OEM accessory pulley , you will need to space the power steering pulley out 6mm using the supplied spacer.
