Increase your driving confidence and towing safety with the superior retarding performance of the BD Brake. Using BD's exclusive Variable Orifice Technology, BD's turbo-mount design bolts in place of the factory elbow between the turbo and the exhaust system, providing peak retarding power throughout the engine's rpm range not just at high rpm like other brands.
Designed for years of reliable operation, the BD Brake's rugged cast-iron housing incorporates BD's exclusive AlumiBronze bushing and piston ring-sealed, stainless steel butterfly shaft that has proven to stand up under the harsh, high-heat conditions of the exhaust environment. Actuated by an air cylinder, the offset butterfly valve won't stick, and has been strategically placed in the elbow so that it won't impede exhaust flow when in the open position. The BD brake incorporates a threaded port for mounting an EGTprobe, as well as a 1/4-inch stainless steel port that can be used to monitor the brake's retarding performance. Got a modified or twin-turbo application? BD's remote-mount or vacuum-actuated four-inch kits are an effective solution.
Controlled by a lighted On/Off toggle switch for automatic transmissions, or stick-mounted rocker switch for manual transmissions, the BD brake communicates with the engine's electronic idle verification board for quick engagement. The durable air compressor included in later model kits can even be used for other applications it's that tough.
Automatic-equipped trucks prior to 2006 require BD's programmable Tow Loc and Pressure Loc kits to electronically control torque converter clutch engagement. This addition effectively reduces slippage, resulting in peak retarding performance as well as lower transmission temperatures.
All BD Brake kits come complete with the brake, air compressor (where applicable), mounting hardware and complete instructions.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Automatic Transmissions - For best retarding results use a TowLoc, AutoLoc or TorqLoc

Hello, I have a 2002 7.3 F-250 and am interested in putting on an exhaust brake system since I purchased a 5th wheel trailer. Why is your product better than the rest? I plan on having it installed by a diesel mechanic with a great reputation. Cost isn't an issue. I just want something that will work great and last and not hurt my truck.Can you also tell me what all I need to purchase? Thanks, Bob?
No other part or pieces will be required for the installation of this unit. This unit is one of our most popular brakes on the market. I would recommend shooting us a call if you have any other questions,
I have this exhaust brake installed on my stock turbo GTP 38. Can I upgrade to a GTP 38R turbo and still use this brake? Thanks.?
Yes you can it uses the same flange.
I have a 7.3 with an automatic tranny do I need any other items to go with that application??
You would need some way to lock the torque converter to get the best braking performance. There are modules like the BD Torqloc that would allow you to lock the converter while the brake is engaged.-Sands
