Hi mate just seen your post on the forum regarding exhaust brake. I amI'm interested to hear about actual people with FIRST hand experience with engine damage from exhaust brakes . Everyone seems to jump on the internet bandwagon spreading nonsense that they heard could happen by someone that made it up . I personally have had a BD remote mount brake on my truck for 100k plus miles and my truck now has 250k on it with zero issues . I tow 7-8k pounds regularly (bobcat +trailer) and my heavy toyhauler that's 11k dry and the brake works great . Saved a lot of brake pads over the years . I swapped to a zf6 right before I put the brake on so I don't know what auto issues come from the brakes but I do know you need a torque converter lock to be able to use the brake .
In australia and have an f250 and it is manual too and i have just purchased an exhaust brake would you be able to send me some pics of your set up please by any chance?
