...and so does Fluidampr, and if you watch the video and listen, you will see they had no preference of one over the other. The video was shared to help others understand why it's a good idea to keep a damper, not to showcase any particular brand.

I'm not sure why you keep attempting to assert brand superiority when the guy's already purchased and installed a fluidampr...

We're going in circles. The issue with the Fluidampr is it "requires" you to trim something you shouldn't and doesn't have all the features of the ATI. Honestly, why do "you" have such a hard on for Fluidampr? I'm unbias, but if i'm going to suggest a product to another Subaru enthusiast. I would recommend the best product and it's ATI.

I noticed that too, preferred keeping the accessory speeds as close to stock as possible. Overdriving accessories requires more torque from the engine as well.

Claims to be "unbiased" and continues attempting to plug his favorite. Funniest thing I've heard all day. I'm not going in circles, still moving straight ahead.

I take issues with someone 'intentionally" pushing an inferior product. As i stated before, i own both (so that i can find out for myself which one is better). Less can be said about you.

You're making claims for which you have zero proof, all you have is opinion. Saying you have both and claiming you like one over the other and you have no proof of how your ATI did better than your FLuidampr. I've shared facts/specifications and that is all, and those facts I've shared are the reason I purchased what I did. You obviously take issue with that, not sure why. People have their reasons for buying either, it's not life and death. You simply can't get over trimming a small piece of plastic when people using these parts are doing plenty of modifications to their vehicles above and beyond that, it's comical.


Get over it.

Seriously? No proof? You're hilarous! Trimming the timing cover? Non-rebuildable, non-tuneable? You're 100% full of crap full time, your brain is completely useless. We're done here.
