Engine brake

Was thinking about putting an engine brake on my truck. Are they only for autos?

You can use them on autos, you just have to run some wires to lock the torque converter when the brake actuates. I'm using my EBPV as a brake, and it works quite well for no more money than it costs. I'm sure the after market brakes work better, but they cost a lot.

Homemade exhaust brake

That is not correct they are for either trans. A friend bought one for his 95 manual and works great.

US Gear was the nicest one we could find that went inline on the exhaust. The ones that bolt to the turbo disrupt the air flow and performance just like the stock EBPV.

He just put his on, hasn't used it much and only tows a large slide-in camper. Everyone else tows but has more axles with more brakes.
