duramax exhaust brake

Dieselperforamance.com now has developed an adjustable
electronic controller that enhances the engine braking
Power of the duramax 2004.5 and up.
3 positions that work for you and under a grand.
150 retarding Hp.
if I had a duramax and I will this would be my first purchase!
Ron

I am rather picky about tinkering with my Dmax. Its a great engine/transmission and I am bit leary about doing something to it that the engineers did not.

I have met engineers, but I have also seen the short cuts big business makes to save a buck Or how hard some engineers are pressed to get a product "function-able"

Don't be Leary.
peterbilt kenworth and Mack engineers didn't put exhaust
brakes on there trucks either but there's hundreds of thousands
Of trucks with them on.
Its good to be objective.

My new Dmax has one built in. The new trucks aren't as fun as the old ones. You can't do squat without voiding the warranty.
