I am sure my stock dampers is fine but they are both high milage engines so I wanted to play safe. Beside..the engines are out so hopefully this DIY will be easier

aggie...u r right. i cant believe how easy changing out the harmonic damper was with the engine out. no special tools other than a pin to lock the flywheel and a long cheater bar.

That's what she said.

As a note...my damper is doing great. Everything attached to it? Not so great.

Bummer, I'm a BF.C guy so I don't know the ins and outs of e46fanatics, but do these ATI dampers ever pop up in the classifieds, maybe someone is selling their car and sells the damper separately?

If/when you sell your ATI damper, please let me know as well. I assume you would post something here.
Thank you.

I'm going to buy Anthony's and then break it. In fact, I'm going to buy them all and break them all so no one can have an ATI damper...
