you can modify your exaust back pressure valve to work just like a exaust brake. you can probably do it for under $10 if you just want a switch in the dash to turn it on. it sounds like a jet engine at higher RPM's :Thumbup: if its cold enough for mine to kick on in the morning I'll try and get a video.

if you are looking for the loud jake brake sound you hear on the big rigs you won't hear it. The exhaust brakes on these are just a flap that closes off the exhaust. It will sound like rushing air and that's about it.

I dont have a exhaust brake. I just have the stock exhaust back pressure valve still hooked up and a straight pipe. when the oil temp is below a certain temp it will close off to help the engine warm up faster.

it will sound basically the same if you modify it to make it a exhaust brake.

sorry it was to warm out this morning to get it to come on. I try again tomorrow but it may be a few days before it cooles off enough again.

your dads was either broke, unhooked, or you just couldn't hear it through a stock muffler. I am almost certan all of the 7.3's had them.

I acually kind of like the way it sounds and am going to miss it when I upgrade turbos, but I have a couple of friends that are also annoied by it and have unplugged theres. to each is his own I guess


for those interested into makeing in into an exaust brake here is a writeup about it. http://www.thedieselstop.com/content...xhaust%20Brake
sorry I thought there was a writeup here on the garage but I couldent find it, this one is written pritty good though.
