I got in on the last group buy for the fluidampr. it's sitting in my shop and I have the car up on jack stands for winter. are there any hints/tips/tricks/cautions you guys have for me that have already done the fluidmpr swap?
I already have oohnoo's crank pulley tool that I used to remove my stock crank damper for the timing belt service, but I believe that tool doesn't work with the fluidampr.

I haven't installed mine yet but other than the holes used to hold it mechanically it is interchangeable with the stock one, so it should install just like a stock one.
I see Chris commented you can grind the pins down to make the tool work.

I have Ninja's crank pulley tool and I just had to grind down the bolts a little as well (I can get a picture of it later if need be). Otherwise it was a real simple straight forward swap.

You should consider using a new OEM bolt and washer. The older bolts used a square opening for removal and torquing. The sides of the square opening are known to split. The newer style bolts uses a mm socket.
