You already have an exhaust brake, you just dont know it! There are many aftermarket "tuners" out there that use the existing EBPV (exhaust backpressure valve) as an exhaust brake when you are decelerating. On my 2000 7.3 I went to larger injectors (250cc single-shot Hybrids) and a tuning package from Beans Diesel. One of the options on the tuner is using the EBPV as an exhaust brake. Works great. No need to buy an aftermarket brake.

You can do a manual switch as well, see this link: http://www.dieselbombers.com/ford-po...ust-brake.html That applies to 99-2003 7.3's.

The website you gave says it loses the braking effect below 2000 RPM IMO leaving a lot to be desired if true.

Under 1500 I'd agree. Works fine from about 3200 down to about 1700 or so.
