Advice on Exhaust brake?

I have a 2003 crew cab 7.3 automatic. Need/want an exhaust brake. I've been searching for awhile and cant make up my mind.

1st: Banks vs pacbrake vs BD? Leaning towards the pacbrake or maybe BD, not sure again.

2nd: Inline or turbo mount? I have the stock turbo in and basic bolt on stuff, intake, exhaust, chip,etc.

Not looking to go to crazy with performance, but if I do all I would upgrade to a GTP38R. the turbo mount BD brake will fit it.

I've researched alot about the pro's and con's for each(inline vs turbo mount) and cant decide. Can someone tell me what worked for them, or what to get? Thanks.

I just use the EBPV on a switch along with a TC lockup switch. Some of the tuners even offer a decel tune that locks the TC and closes the EBPV.

Thats what I used to run... Ran the SP Diesel EBPV brake and TC lock up kit. Worked good.

Dont see the need for an exhaust brake now.

Thanks for the feedback so far. Any advice on Turbo mount or in line. I have a Turbo back 4".

Inline would be an easier install, may not be quite as quick to react as a turbo mounted one but we're splitting hairs at that point because it would just be a fraction of a second slower.
