Mine is a BD brake and the controller than senses throttle position isn't accurate. I have a manual 6spd so I don't have to worry about a torque converter.

To make a exhaust brake effective it has to be as close to the turbo as possible and you have strong valve springs.

I have a BD in my F450 and I can't stand it, it never works in the cold weather and it will only work 3 times and then it stops. But when it does work, it's fun.
But I want a Dodge 5500 instead.

OK. I love the Jake just as much as the next guy. But will putting one of these knock off butterfly exhaust valves really make a pick up sound like a Peterbilt. I would think it would sound like a big woosh of air. Please inlighten me. If I could make my Ford diesel sound like those big petes, than I would do it in a heartbeat.
