This used BD Exhaust Brake fits a LB7 Duramax. I had ZERO problems with this unit. It is top quality. Everything is included for installation. Installation Manual is included. I originally installed it on my 2004 LB7 Duramax/Allison Extended Cab truck. All wiring and hoses are long enough for a Crew Cab truck. The installation instructions were very easy to understand when I installed the Exhaust Brake. When I took the Exhaust Brake off of the LB7 Duramax, I tried to mark each connection with tape so now the next installation will even be easier for the next installer. I have listed BD‚Äôs Website for you to read more about the installation. The installation manual is on their Website.

BD Engine Brakes enable your Diesel to navigate downhill grades and mountainous terrain easier and safer than using the vehicle's conventional braking system. This unit will increase the life of the stock foundation brakes and also prevent brake fade under severe grade driving. The factory-approved backpressure provides the retarding horsepower to slow down the vehicle on even the steepest descents or just slowing down for a highway off ramp.
The exhaust flow is not restricted when the stainless butterfly is open in the large 4‚Äù casting that bolts into the exhaust system.
The kit is complete with a lighted toggle switch for mounting conveniently on the dash. The brake releases as soon as the throttle is applied or the switch is flipped off. As in other BD designs, the backpressure is self-regulating. Once the pressure reaches the Duramax specification, the butterfly position changes to maintain the highest pressure possible. This variable orifice design offers far superior retarding performance throughout the engine RPM range compared to a fixed orifice design that only offers peak retarding performance at peak rpm. Listed for $1,295.00 plus tax and shipping on BD‚Äôs Website.
Reason for Selling:
I sold my 2004 LB7 Duramax/Allison truck. This Exhaust Brake bolts to the four-bolt flange of the Turbo Down Pipe. My new LBZ Duramax no longer has that type of exhaust. Originally, I thought I would be able to move the Exhaust Brake from the LB7 Duramax to the LBZ Duramax, however it will not fit.
