I have a tune on my 09 2500 HD that uses the VVT turbo as the brake, it works really well.

Anyone that knows anything about Cummins powered RAM's knows there have been at least two ".5" spit years. They both have had to do with emissions, first in 1998 model year when all 98's made in 97 had 12 Valve engines and all engines made in 98 had 24 valve engines and those are referred to 98.5's Then in 06 for 07 model year there were 5.9's only and all 07's made in 07 were 6.7's also known as 07.5's.

I would have thought you knew this or you are simply being argumentative???

^ Look around at which forum you’re on.
I’m going with argumentative, whether consciously or not.

My cousin bought a Banks exhaust brake from 4wheelonline. According to him, it works really good. He tows a 16000 lb 5th wheel trailer.
