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
