08 exhaust brake??

My wife's grandpa just got his new 08 and he was wondering if he can make a homemade exhaust brake for it like he did on his 02 7.3. Can this be done on the new ones so he doesn't have to spend 1000 bucks? Also what is the best new programmer for the 6.4? I know the KEM is a hot item for those who delete the DPF. Any other suggetions would be great.

Befor ethe KEM I had a Hypertech and it worked very well. Picked the MPG up about 1.4 and thats alot on a commercial use truck with 20K on board everyday. I was told to wait until 25,000 miles to install any type of programmer on the truck to let all the parts get broke in - espeacially if its an auto truck. Wich was about 7 weeks for me , but it done wonders with all aspects on the truck for less than $400.00. But the KEM is the best by far!!!!!!!but the DPF must be removed since regen mode is turned off and it would clog rapidly. But it aint a diesel until you can tick off a tailgater on a motorcycle with a smoke screen !!!!!

thanks for the reply rich. I don't know if he's gonna want to mess around with taking off the DPF since he's only got 3k on her and its their travel vehicle. Do you have any thoughts on the exhaust brake?

the Tow/Haul in auto trucks works very well in stock form. I use this every time I am coasting to stop or getting off an exit ramp, I do not run with it on constant because it will cause the trans not to down shift when I feel like it needs to and hurts fuel mileage as well. So I really see no need for an exhaust brake if its an automatic truck.

I know what your saying about the new trans. They are alot different than the old 4R100, but he still wants his exhaust brake so oh well. They do alot of traveling in the west pulling a big 5th wheel so i guess he feels he needs it.

I pull 3-4 cars and trucks daily with 20K of weight up and down the southeast and through Tennesee and have never felt like I needed any more.And after thinking of it I wonder if the tow haul is using some form of e-brake because the EGT drops dramtically when it kicks on, just my .02

Yeah that is interesting i wonder if there is an internal e-brake from the factory. I now on the new cummins you can actually order an e-brake from the factory.
