Default Ross performance s54 harmonic balancer

Has anyone heard of this company before? Their based out of Australia and look to have some interesting parts for the s54. I found them looking at their damper specifically. Right now the AUD/USD conversion makes their damper roughly what the stock part costs.

I canít imagine 1200hp in an s54. The damper I linked is their bottom line but it does look like they have a few more tiers for other applications.

I emailed them about shipping to the states, I can ask when they get back to me.

Interesting find, thatís a pretty good price for a new damper. Guess it depends on shipping costs, keep us updated.

Alright, I should have an S54 Ross Damper in hand and on my car in the next couple of weeks depending on shipping and when I can get a weekend to put it in. I'm doing a time attack this weekend so i'll have some track feel from my admittedly worn out stock unit and I'm planning to get more wheel time this season.

I need your help. How do I objectively measure harmonic frequencies in the engine? I have a mechanics stethoscope I i'll be able to hear initially if there's a difference.

Nice! Iíll for sure keep you posted. If it goes well Iím hoping to help set up a group buy. I would love to get Ross plugged into the US market and help all the s54ís live longer.
