SCT tuner jake brake? Good, bad and the ugly.

Is anyone running the jake brake on your truck? How does it work? Any problems? ARP studs a must?

its an turbo brake that has to deal with the VGT on the turbo. Ive never used it but its supposed to be bad for the turbo

btw a Jake holds the exhaust valves open and defuels and is completely different

Super loud jake brake **Turn up your speakers** - YouTube

Yea I know what the difference is I work on gravel trains everyday I was using the SCT language to discribe it. just wondering what everyone thought and has ran into on the 6.0. No engine break of any kind is GOOD for your motor I got Cat motors that have snapped every stud off on the actuator housings from jake brakes.

P.S- nice video
