Exhaust Brake???

Can you put a exhaust brake on the new powerstroke? If so has anyone done it?

Exhaust Brake

Ask your local dealer about warranty issues. If you have the tow pkg then you already have engine compression braking assistance. Using the transmission downshifts the engine will help slow you down. The exhaust brake restricts the flow of exhaust thus increasing back pressure which in turn keeps RPMS down. Ford in '08 has tremendously designed the total package that as a result keeps aftermarket bolt-ons to almost no application.

I am wanting a bigger truck. I have the 07 dodge 3500 right now. I really like the exhaust brake on it but Chrysler has cheated me in the past I dont want another one. Plus since 06 there quality has gone to crap. Your talking about the auto tranny slowing you down arent you? I will get the manual tranny

I don't think you can run an exhaust brake. Sensers reading high back pressure will cause engine to go into regeneration mode. It will think the PF are plugged.
