Exhaust Brakes

From what I have been told by the companies I have toggled the reason there is no exhaust brake on a 6.4 is due to the emmissions stuff and incompatibility.......

You guys are all about how to go fast and build power, anyone out there install one of these and how well does it work?

I need a better way to control a 10K# truck down hill with something other than the brakes and a transmission shifting into 3rd gear at high speeds.

I may be wrong, but I was under the impression that we all have a EB, kind of. From what I was told, if you use the tow/haul button, it acts as a EB when you touch the brake pedal. Can anyone else confirm this?

Yes. Not like the Chevy but in tow/haul the transmission works with our trucks to create somewhat of an exhaust brake.

5R110 and associated programming Lock the Torque converter, and disable the coast solenoid to try to hold the truck at a set speed. If the speed is increased (e.g. the first attempt is not holding speed) it down shifts again to try to hold speed. At this point the motor is screeming if the hill is steep enought and the load heavy enough speed still needs to be regulated with service brakes. Yes the no throttle setting does have the Variable Vane in the closed position but this is not a Exhaust brake nor does it function in any way as a significant Exhaust Brake.

If you have ever driven a Dodge with a factory Exhaust brake you will notice that the truck slow dramaticly just on teh EB alone. Cummins/Dodge uses a variable geometry type of turbo but it is of different design to International/Ford.

I as well would love to find some way of better braking, while my truck is built for speed I typically pull around 10 to 12,000 ibs every day and living in the north carolina mtns is pure hell on my stock transmission

PTP to the rescue again thanks Eric!

Yes an Exhaust brake can be added to the deleted truck. Sent a e-mail to PTP and this is what I got back.

"It would just get spliced in under the passenger seat area of the exhaust. As far as tuning goes just use your tow/haul mode and activate the brake manually."

The one and only thing I like about dodge/cummins combo (our service trucks) is the exhaust brake. With it on and the t/h on, never need the brakes. Too bad the trucks are always in the shop.....

I would like an exhaust brake for my 6.4
