I have the BD exhaust brake. In my opinion the best one available. It is adjustable to what percentage braking you want. It comes set to 60% , which is max recommended on a stock truck. It held real good, and I do have an automatic. I also have a full set of DP tunes giving complete control of the transmission gear and torque convert lock. My motor is built, I spent a lot of cash on the build and its pretty much nuclear bomb proof, not just bullet proof like stock. So I have it pegged at 100% braking. Its loud as hell, like a rig, but it holds down my 41ft Fifth wheel threw the mountains of BC. I don't know anywhere in North America with stupid climbs like we have. Even Colorado mountains look like speed bumps here. The tunes that use the back pressure valve work ok, but that valve is wimpy as heck, and if your towing any real loads it wont last long. Some have, most wont. My case is some what extreme since my motor is valued at 40k and I tow way over the legal limit ( fifth wheel 18k loaded, Backhoe lowbed 26k). The amazing thing is the transmission is unhappy, but still intact. Automatics don't like the exhaust brakes, and they total the coast clutch system unless your transmission is built as well. I vowed to rebuild it when it goes thinking that would be soon with the power and braking. But it wont blow! For a crappy transmission, I sure got a good one some how.
