The factory VGT turbo and exhaust brake work fairly well as a factory combination. However, over the years since the release of the 6.7L Cummins, they have also shown their weaknesses. The biggest issue that most people have is that the sliding nozzle / ring and the turbo will develop soot and actually freeze up, causing serious drivability issues, as well as losing the exhaust brake. On top of this, the factory turbo is fairly limited in its capabilities, especially as we add more power to the engine. And finally, the performance of the factory exhaust brake is marginal. For those that have never had an exhaust brake, they think it's the best thing since sliced bread, but for those that have had a traditional in-line style of brake, there simply is no comparison.
So what's the solution? Many Cummins owners will eliminate the VGT turbo and switch to a standard single-stage turbo, similar to what the 5.9L's came with for years, and there is a multitude of performance turbos that suit this same criteria. However, when you do this, you lose the exhaust brake. The fix? BD builds an in-line exhaust brake specific for those 6.7L owners that have removed the VGT turbo in favor of a single stage, such as the BD Super B Special. This kit comes complete with everything you need to install into the 4" downpipe found on most aftermarket turbo retrofit kits for the 6.7L's.
Increase your driving confidence and towing safety with the superior retarding performance of the BD Brake for your Cummins! Using BD's exclusive Variable Orifice Technology, BD's inline exhaust brake mounts in the stream of the exhaust system, perfect for those with aftermarket turbos, 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 Exhaust Gas Temperature probe, 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 four-inch kits are an effective solution.
Controlling the exhaust brake is done via the factory switch on the dash for a super clean, factory looking installation. The BD brake communicates with the engine's electronic idle verification board for quick engagement. The durable air compressor can even be used for other applications it's that tough.
All BD Brake kits come complete with the brake, air compressor, mounting hardware and complete instructions.
IMPORTANT NOTE This exhaust brake will NOT work with the factory (or similar) VGT turbo, MUST be used with a traditional style turbo, such as an S300 or the BD Super B Special.

Will this work with the stock dash switch for the EB in a 2012 dodge ram. Want to run a second gen swap kit and this is crucial for me. Thanks, David?
The brake will work with the factory switch from 07.5-12. By the time you read this the site will most likely be updated to reflect that. Thanks!
Exactly how long would it take to arrive to my location? I'm in need of one but I can't wait for weeks on end.?
It would depend on the shipping method you choose. I have anywhere from our free economy shipping estimated at 6-10 business days, to faster more expensive options like Next day air or 2nd day air.
Will the product work with any non vgt aftermarket turbo??
Yes, this is designed for that application.
I have an on board arb air compressor already installed on my truck, would I be able to connect that to the exhaust break instead of using the viar one??
The BD kit is specifically setup for running their supplied compressor that is the way that I would run it.
How long does it take to install?
I would say total install time is between 4-6 hours. Requires welding.
Hello my question if I by bd 4 remount mount exaust brake for my dodge 2500 2008 year do you have switch with wireless to dash board because my truck dond have switch dosh board he include or not??
I do not have any wireless switches no. I believe we can special order a kit from be with a toggle switch to activate the brake. DppSands
