exhaustbreak

Recommended Posts

I called the guy that had the exhaust-break that Lumpdog posted on craigslist Its a jacobs ram break, and with no compressor, vacuum operated I guess. is this design a good one? I would like to put it on my 01 work truck how well do the vacuum operated ones work? He is coming past my house tomorrow and I am going to take look at it. so any information would be helpful.

You will need the plate off the back of an older turbo (94-98) 12V, then you take the plate and elbow off of your turbo, put the plate on that you got from the 12V turbo and clamp the exhaust brake on that, hook up the down pipe and that part is done.
