Exhaust brake for 7.3

I have a 2001 F550 and pull a 20,000# fifth wheel trailer. [I] was told that I could have some sort of manual exhaust installed on the 7.3 for a couple hundred dollars.
Has anyone done this and how do i go about doing it.????
Bob

Do a search on here for exhaust brake. I posted all the info to do it yourself for around $25 and how to modify it for a stick shift a few weeks back. If you can not find it, PM me and I will dig it up for you.

Nope. A big rig has a Jake brake, It plays with the valves.

This just blocks off the exhaust and makes a hissing sound like the truck sounds at start up when it is freezing outside.

Yup, that is the link I suggest all the time. And to adapt it to a stick shift I have used s range selector from a two speed axle from Napa, $15. Only on and off, negate all the other switching unless you want it. It has worked fine, I just installed one over the holidays on my father in-laws truck. It took me 30minutes to do it.
