I would agree. If you just do an exhaust break and nothing else it won't help and hurt stuff.

I'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 .
