exhaust/tranny brake

I was wondering if there is an aftermarket source for exhaust or tranny brakes for my 02 F250 7.3L. I know some later models have them and I had an 2000 F150 with a tranny brake it was nice.. My 02 doesnt even hold rpm's when pulling a load if i let off the gas pedal. Any help suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks....looks like I should have done some research...didnt know the cost of what i was getting in to... I think I need to do some other mods first..so far I have K&N Intake kit and 4" free flow exhaust. I am wanting to put pyrometer and boost gauge and cant decide on Edge Evolution #15001 or just go with simple gauges for now. Any input

TS chip with custom tunes and separate guages..IMO best option. Also might want to get rid of the K&N...

There is also a link on here that you can turn your EBPV into an exhaust brake for less than a real exhaust brake
