For diesel owners that do any kind of towing, having a good exhaust brake is not only a luxury, but a necessity. Unfortunately, for owners of any vehicle produced after January 1, 2007, installing an exhaust brake can potentially void your warranty and will not work properly with the emissions equipment on these vehicles. For 6.7L Dodge owners, they are fortunate enough that Dodge integrated a unique type of exhaust brake that merely controls the turbo to create back pressure. For 6.4L Ford owners, they have a similar type of turbo, but Ford never built in the programming to simply control the turbo to act as an exhaust brake. However, BD has changed this.
BD utilizes the variable vane technology by electronically closing off the turbine vanes which can create up to 130 retarding horsepower. This braking force will help to maintain your speeds on descents and curves, giving you better control of your truck and load.
The rotary switch offers three different modes:
- Vane Control Only
- Vane Control WITH Aggressive Downshift
- Delivers up to 70psi exhaust backpressure
- Electronically closes off turbocharger vanes to provide engine braking
- Can create up to 130 retarding horsepower
- Helps maintain speeds on descents and curves
- Better control of your truck and load.
- Different modes including automatic downshifting keeping engine rpm and engine retarding force high
- Integrated with the cruise control to automatically accelerate and decelerate to maintain vehicle speed
- Easily installs by plugging into existing factory ports
- In-dash 'Push To Engage' Button

I am running a H&S programmer....Will this operate without any issues? 816-698-9191?
This product will work with whatever engine tuning you have. It is a separate control box that controls only VGT actuation of the turbo.
U say 6.7 and 6.4 have similar turbos so does this make it whistle like the 6.7's do at idle too?
It is not going to affect the turbo sound at idle. It is controlling the exhaust vanes and closing them off when activated to create backpressure to slow the engine down when towing. Turning it on at idle is not going to do anything.
does this work with manual?
Yes this will work for a manual or automatic.
How difficult is the module to install? Approximate time for me as an owner to install ? Are there calibration adjustments??
That module is mostly a plug and play application. I would assume it would take 2-3 hours to install.
Will the exhaust brake work with a blow off valve installed??
Yes, as this controls exhaust pressure, not compressor side.
I recently installed this unit with a tap shifter. The braking performance is very good for towing our 14000 lbs fifth wheel our first trip out although an engine code appeared P2563 halfway to our destination. Loss of power due to the lack of boost which was 27 psi instead of about 37 -40 pulling a hill. Any thoughts to why this has happened?
That could be caused by a number of things. If you have a weak exhaust gasket or a weak downpipe that cracked and started leaking it could cause that. Going to need to do a little diagnosing. DppSands
