I've been doing some research and am thinking of installing one of these in my 2010 F350 6.4l SD

Anyone do this?

I own a GMC 2007 vintage and put a Banks speed brake unit in it as I was towing a 37' 5th wheel and this system works on the variable vanes within the torque converter and works very well at slowing the unit down. It is adjustable as I use the truck with the bed empty and put the braking system on its lowest settings. Most aftermarket mfg. have good quality products.

I have a BD unit on my 97 7.3. It's a complex install but works well. Did the pedestal delete too.

Turns out my 2010 has one built in and I didn't even know it!

Ford didn't put in exhaust brakes until 2011 with the 6.7.

Type of Tiedowns used: Torklift with Fastguns
Truck and Camper Setup: The plan will utilize a 3500 GMC with a 11 or 12' TC with a full compliment of Torklift hitch components and tie downs. Stable loads if needed will be installed.



My 2016 3500 GMC has both the tow mode and the exhaust brake and it works very well. I can come down 395 out of Bridgeport, down to Mono lake and never hit the brake. Fully loaded I am some where around 18K. IMO as a truck driver, jakes are like turbos, free braking and free hp, love those diesels.

Actually, truck drivers (I'm a retired one) all call them Jake Brakes but in reality they aren't. 'Jake Brake' is a registered trade name for the Jacobs Manufacturing Exhaust brake. They don't all work the same either. Jake style brakes work by holding the exhaust valve open, allowing the engine to act like an air compressor. Some brakes act on exhaust flow, by closing off the exhaust and creating back pressure (BD works like that).

There are also retarders that work on the torque converter of an automatic trans by hydraulic action and even others that use electromagnets in a differential to provide retarding.

I have a BD on my 7.3 that closes off the exhaust gases and creates back pressure in the engine to slow the truck, much like a 4 stroke gas motor retards when you let off the gas and the throttle plate is closed.
