Below are the long anticipated Fluidampr dyno results as a follow up to the product introduction seen here. These tests were conducted on a 2003 GTI 1.8T running 93 octane fuel with a Kinetic exhaust manifold, gt3071r t3 turbo, je pistons, IE rods, and unitronic 630cc software. The test was performed on the same day, same car, same dyno. A 5 minute cool down was given between pulls.
We started off with the factory damper on the car, and made 2 dyno pulls within 1hp of each other one pull is shown below as Stockdampr002, the blue line.
From there, we shut the car off, turned the wheel all the way to the right and installed the fluidampr while the car was still strapped down on the dyno.
Next, we made 2 pulls with the fluidampr installed. One run is shown below as Dampr003, the red line. We were shocked with a peak gain of 6whp and 9wtq. However, in the upper rpm range gains of 11whp and 10wtq were seen. We did not expect to see such gains on a car running around 350whp.
Finally, to confirm the results we once again changed the damper with the car on the dyno. We removed the fluidampr with the car still on the dyno and installed the factory damper again. We made another pull and those results are shown below as Stockdampr003, the green line.
