Is it worth it?
Is it gonna help even with a balanced bottom end?
I know the Dodge boys swear by it. Who has first hand experience with it and would like to share the before and after?

You've probably already talked with him about it, but David said in his opinion it's not worth it. Of course, I put a girdle on my new motor when he said it wasn't necessary so.....:D I may end up putting one on sooner or later. I look at it as it's a relatively cheap thing that may or may not work, but it doesn't hurt to have it on there so with the $$$ that's gone into these motors, what the heck.

6 leakers have the prob because it is too much weight on the crank, and causes the front cover to break in the high hp applications.

Its well worth it. Everyone has an opinion, and on a 7.3 its standard issue for us. Of course, we've never run 129, dropped the crank on the track, or leaned anything out, so keep that in mind.

If BB says it's good I would buy it.

I don't believe that's entirely accurate. While the static weight of the damper is higher than stock by a few pounds, the "felt weight" while running is less due to the fact that the inertia ring is not fixed to the rest of the damper.

They are actively looking at the issue of breaking LPOP gears to determine the cause.
