Increase your driving confidence and towing safety with the superior retarding performance of the BD Brake for 1998.5-02 5.9 liter Cummins engines. 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 a powerful, three-inch vacuum 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 EGT 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 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.
Automatic-equipped trucks 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.IMPORTANT NOTES:
- All BD Brake kits come complete with the brake, mounting hardware and complete instructions.
- Trucks with automatic transmission should use a TowLoc, AutoLoc or TorqLoc for best retarding results.

The only option I would have for you would be running an inline brake. I am not aware of a shorter brake or any parts to accomplish what you are trying to do other than an inline brake.-TL
