Or if you have a TC lock-up switch of some sort it would be fine. Im not sure who makes one for the 7.3 but you could do the ebpv switch

i only reccomend using the exhaust brake at higher speeds when the tranny is in overdrive or 3rd. its not good to lug the transmission at low speeds with an exhaust brake. If you wtill have the factory warm up valve on your turbo, you can use that by running a switched 12v power source to the plug under the compressor wheel of a turbo, mine worked pretty good.

I guess i should have explained my self.... with a TC lockup at puts all your braking pressure on your coasting transmission clutches which are very light. I think only 3 clutches. Its just a matter of time b4 you wipe these clutches, fill your trans with metal, and u know what happens form here. So unless u have a BUILT trans(with a TC lockup) or a manual i would not suggest a exhaust brake, i was looking into this heavily and even designed a solid state controller to work automatically as i let off the gas and such to activate and lock the TC and once shifted down to 2nd it would turn itself off, but was discouraged by the transmission issue that i was unaware of. And this info came form a very well respected sponsor on this site, so i trashed the idea. JMHO... if you still want to. There are plenty of write ups on this. It involves using a switch to drive a double contact relay, one set of contacts to lock the TC, and the other to close the EBPV
