Re: Exhaust Brake...Whats the Sh**???

I have a Pacbrake that I will let go fairly cheap. I recommend you do your homework on adding exhaust brake to an engine that was not designed to operate with an exhaust brake. Valve to piston contact may result and high exhaust back pressure on a turbo that already has really high drive pressure. Just my two cents.

Re: Exhaust Brake...Whats the Sh**???

To be honest, i have had a pacbrake in one of my trucks and it wasnt as good as the one you already have on your truck now through your ebpv. I really didnt see any advantages over the pac brake vs the stock brake.

I have a brand new US Gear 4" exhaust brake sitting in a box that I never installed that I need to get rid of. Its taking up space on the shelf.

Re: Exhaust Brake...Whats the Sh**???

i would just use the free one that came factory... You can wire the EBPV to open and close with a switch.
