exhaust brake ?'s

Is it bad to leave the exhaust brake engaged. Will there be negative effects. I assume this is probably not a good idea, although I don't exactly know why.

Is this the DIY brake or an add on? Either way you can leave em on for warm up while the trucks parked, but don't drive with it on. It hurts fuel economy, raises EGT's, and makes you lose a ton of power. Always shut it off when you come to a stop, i don't know how you have yours rigged.

I have the pac brake. I can turn it on and off as I please, I just was wondering if it was bad to leave it on. Doesn't seem to effect the egt's or power, any throttle pressure stops the the back pressure.

Ok, if you have it setup on a throttle activated switch then its ok. Some guys will make up the DIY ebpv brake and they will only have an ON/OFF switch. If they leave it on it won't shut off when you hit the gas. Then thats bad. Yours should be ok.
