Ya that's pretty much the main thing keeping the thought of swapping the turbo out of my head. I don't want to lose the factory exhaust brake. It just works so nicely and is awesome to have.

It's not really an air pump sound... it's almost a whistle. When you're going down a hill and let off you should hear that slight whistle sound and it should be holding the truck back fairly well. Especially if the RPM's are higher (at least 2000 or more).

The BD exhaust brake has a air pump associated with it. I get absolutely no hold back. Although I'm not much above 2000 so maybe I will give that a go

An air pump?? Why would it need one of those? Can you snap some pictures of the whole set up on your truck so we see exactly what's going on and how it's all hooked up?

if you go onto bd diesels website for a 2003-2004 turbo mount exhaust brake instructions it shows the mounting. it's mounted inside the fender. I don't have easy access to it.
