Engine dampers are essential when building high horsepower and high revving motors. Up until now no one has made an effective damper for the Volkswagen & Audi 1.8 TSI & 2.0 TSI (EA888) platform.
Decreased engine vibration. No more flywheels, crank trigger wheels, or timing gears falling off of the crankshaft.
Decreased "Clutch & Gear Box Chatter" which is caused by lightweight single mass flywheels.
Reduction in RPM drops when shifting in a competitive environment.
Gains of 3-10whp and 5-13 ft/lbs. of torque depending on your current setup.
An overall more efficient and reliable engine.
