In short, dampens torsional twist of crankshaft for longevity of the engine and components... basically counteracts these forces like a suspension would do, kindda..

What will this actually do? The product description made it sound like I’d be a damn fool not to install it.

Basically, as the engine runs at different RPM, there are different vibrational and torsional harmonics introduced into the crankshaft and rotating assembly. Without a quality damper, you can start to destroy sometimes odd bits of the engine. Oil pump, bearings, valve train, cracking things, etc. However, the car factory has a damper (as do all modern cars I’m fairly certain). It works well enough. Only really modified cars need an upgraded damper.
