The BD Brake offers retarding power without compromise. Their testing has revealed that the Powerstroke engines have an extremely durable top end, with hydraulic lifters that easily open 140-lb. valve springs. The 40 lbs. of backpressure the BD Brake generates is far below what this engine can handle, so there is no risk of valve float.
Designed for years of reliable operation, the BD Brake's rugged cast-iron housing incorporates BD's exclusive AlumiBronze bushing and piston ring-sealed butterfly shaft that has proven to stand up under the harsh, high-heat conditions of the exhaust environment. BD's exclusive Variable Orifice Technology utilizes an air cylinder on current models to actuate the offset stainless steel butterfly valve. Exhaust backpressure is maintained at a maximum of 45 psi (180 retarding horsepower) throughout the engine's working rpm range. If excessive backpressure develops, the valve opens automatically to regulate sufficient backpressure. The BD Brake provides superior retarding performance that starts at only 1200 rpm, with peak retarding power achieved by 1800 rpm! From there, it just holds on right through the rpm range. BD Brake systems designed for 6.0 liter trucks utilize air pressure from an on-board air compressor included with the kit. All BD Brake kits come complete with all necessary hoses, brackets, mounting hardware and instructions.
Please choose from the options if your truck has a manual or auto transmission and if you are running stock or aftermarket exhaust. We strongly recommend upgrading your exhaust now if you are thinking about doing it in the future. The stock exhaust kits will not work on a aftermarket exhaust system. We at Diesel Power Products offer many styles of exhaust systems for your truck. If you have any questions on which system is right for you, give us a call and we would be happy to help steer you in the right direction!
