Although this may be the most extraordinary year we’ve ever encountered, the SEMA Show must go on. Somehow, someway, SEMA 360 is now. This virtual experience has kept us in the SEMA spirit being able to see what companies are coming out with at the end of this year and as we make our way into 2021 right here on our smartphones/computers.
Fluidampr, regardless of what is happening right now, is pushing harder than ever in developing parts that our trucks will love. A few parts in particular are their latest products for tractor pulling, the 2JZ engine, and the competition Cummins dampers. All of these are being featured in the show’s New Product Showcase.
“SEMA360 promises to bring the industry together at the time when friendships and passion around the automotive aftermarket and performance racing industry are so welcomed,” says Brian LeBarron, Fluidampr marketing. “What’s unique with SEMA 360, compared to simply browsing the Internet and social media, is we’ve compiled our best-of-the-best content in one spot. Plus you have instant access to chat and connect with our team. Look for us under Featured Exhibitors.”
Toyota 2JZ Damper
With their newest revision, the popular performance damper for the Toyota 2JZ engine (PN: 840801), the accessory drive pulley is now interchangeable at the request of professional race engine builders. The added flexibility allows car builders to make future engine modifications without the need to purchase a new damper.
The updated model comes equipped with a removable stock size, six-rib aluminum serpentine belt pulley. It is secured by three 3/8-24 3/4-inch socket head fasteners. The change to aluminum results in an almost 1⁄2 pound overall weight reduction. Underdrive pulleys will be available at a later date.
Three pre-drilled 3/8-24 holes on a 3.2” diameter provide for mandrel and accessory drive configurations. Finally, a new laser engraving process creates highly detailed and permanent SFI 18.1 serialization, timing marks, and the Fluidampr logo. Available through quality performance part distributors and retailers. $502 MSRP.
Also, Fluidampr announced they are releasing two new performance diesel competition series crankshaft dampers. Applications are Cummins 5.9L / 6.7L common rail (p/n 980301) and tractor pulling engines with a taper lock hub (p/n 1243101).
5.9-Liter/6.7-Liter Cummins Performance Competition Damper
Fluidampr’s new performance competition damper for the 5.9L/6.7L Cummins common rail engines are here. Drag racers and sled pullers look for all-out, competition-ready parts and the new dampers will deliver.
At 10-3/32” diameter and 28.8 lbs, the competition damper offers greater damping over the standard Fluidampr performance diesel design. The added mass is strategically located closer to the block by eliminating the accessory drive pulley. A tone wheel is integrated into the damper housing.
The robust steel design is laser welded for superior durability under high torque and horsepower. A lasting, wear resistant finish comprises of black zinc chromate, plus laser engraved logo and SFI serial number. The damper meets SFI 18.1 specifications.
-Damper Only. No Pulley.
-Robust Single Piece Construction
-Integrated Tone Wheel
-SFI 18.1 Spec
Fluidampr recommends Drill Pin Kit (p/n 300002) and Cummins Full Power Kit (p/n 300008) installation hardware. Available through quality parts distributors and professional diesel engine builders.
First Ever Tractor Pulling – Universal Fit For Taper Lock Hub
Tractor pulling engine builders long favored Fluidampr parent company, Vibratech TVD heavy-duty viscous dampers. Fluidampr now takes it further with 35 years of experience developing dampers for professional motorsports. The result is exceptional, long-lasting crankshaft vibration control for today’s top Pro Pullers.
In comparison, the new Fluidampr tractor pulling damper surpasses the Vibratech TVD heavy duty damper in competition use. The Fluidampr design meets SFI 18.1 safety specifications for high rpm structural rotational integrity. Inertia mass is roughly 10% greater to optimize vibration control for higher torque. Additional internal components compensate for greater thrust loads. Overall, thicker steel and laser welding the housing creates a single-piece design for superior durability under high torque and horsepower.
The damper also features a more robust, 12 bolt-on 4.5” b.c. mounting flange. The universal fit design requires a taper lock hub with 3.25” pilot. Looks as great as it performs. Wear-resistant black zinc chromate, plus laser engraved logo, timing marks, and SFI serial number complete the Fluidampr branded design.
-Robust Competition Design Specifically For Tractor Pulling
-12-Bolt Flange For Custom Mounting
-Clockwise / Coutnerwise Laser Engraved Timing Marks
-SFI 18.1 Spec
Available through quality parts distributors and professional diesel engine builders.
