Exhaust brake question

I want to put a BD exhaust brake on my truck I think and my question is this: I plan on putting 910 comp valve springs in my truck when I do my injectors so will these springs be ok with the exhaust brake? Thanks for any info.

They will be ok as it's an exhaust brake and not a engine brake where the valves would be held down
U will like the brake but if u have after market 4" or bigger exhaust the the down pipe supply with the kit is stock 3.5"
I went with PAC brake.turbo mount as I have mbrp 4"

I have 4" turbo back so I need to get extra parts? Or does the kit include what I need?

Go PAC brake
Unless u want to replace your 4" down pipe with a 3.5" one then go with banks

Like others have said, go with the Pac brake. You'll love having one, I've run a Kenworth with a Caterpillar that had an engine brake, little different, but still it's nice to have slowing down with a load...(which in my case was a truck loaded to 80,000 lol)
