exhaust brake

what type would you go with? I have a 99 5spd and a chance to get a bd for a good price but was wondering how good they were or what style to go with when I have the cash.

I think the bd ones are supposed to be pretty good. I've also heard a lot about pac brake and blue ox I believe its called. I love the exhaust brake feature on my 6.7L use it all the time.

I've got the dodge Jacobs brake on my truck and works awesome. I've got 156K miles on the clock and the brake pads have never been changed yet. (Stock brakes!) I figure I'll do a brake job at about 200K miles for the first time...

I never used one that seemed weak or poor. They all seem to function just as they should. OEM, BD, Banks*, I can't tell a difference.

With the exception of the Banks stickers that come w/ it, those stickers add power.

thanks guys. I just like the idea of added stopping power. I may of found a good deal on a bd.
