The variable vane turbocharger design used in the 2006-up Duramax engines to reduce turbo lag and increase power can also help slow you down. BD utilizes this technology to electronically close off the 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.
While in Tow/Haul mode, switch BD's Variable Vane Brake (VVB) on and every time you let off the throttle, it will close the variable vanes in the turbo, developing exhaust back pressure in the engine's combustion chamber which creates resistance against the piston from reaching top dead center.
The VVB switch offers three different modes to include automatic, moderate, and aggressive down shifting programs for the Allison transmission to give better weight control. Exhaust braking also works in Allison manual shift selections. The VVB integrates with the cruise control to automatically accelerate and decelerate to maintain vehicle speed.
Easily and simply installs by plugging into existing factory ports and by mounting the rotary switch on your dash. All of these features in one package which with some competitors would require two separate ones at nearly twice the price and twice as long to install. Now that is value added engine retarding at it's engineered finest.
- BD cannot guarantee compatibility with all aftermarket products that have a permanent connection to the OBDII plug inside of the cab. Older Edge Attitude displays have a known compatibility issue and the newer Edge CTS and CS are not compatible at this time. H&S Mini Maxx and Bully Dog 40428 are not compatible at this time.

Does this product have any adverse effect on engine or turbo life??
In some extremely rale situations it could. It puts alot of backpressure into the cylinders. If your headgasket is already weak it could cause damage to it. Shouldn't have any negative effects on turbo life.
Can this be used at the same time as my H&S mini max programmer that is plugged in? Or will this have to be plugged into the same spot as my programmer??
This item is not able to be used with an H&S Tuner, even if you have a OBDII Port Splitter. -Ben
