Powerstroker Exhaust Brake

Just curious, has anyone ever heard of or used the Powerstroker Exhaust brake? the price on Ebay is very inexpensive and I want to see if anyone else has used it. Does it work well? Does it slow the tow vehicle/traler down well? Is it safe on the trucks emissions/engine? The link for the brake as sold on ebay is below:

You could make one yourself for a fraction of the cost. It is just a switch to close your exhaust back pressure valve. I know there is some writeups somwhere on the net.

That looks like that ebay link is basically just a switch and some wiring like the DIY kit...

Not sure if your interested in making your own. If your patient enough I know someone will chime in and point you in the right direction for the writeup.

Has anyone done the DIY kit? Is it safe on the turbo, exhaust, and engine? Thanks!

Its just like the one in the ebay link. Its just a switch to supply power to the exahaust back pressure valve to close it when you want to have engine braking. The downfall of this is you have to be above 2000rpms I think so going slower it won't work as an engine brake.
