The BD-Power 2033135 Turbo Mount Exhaust Brake for your 1989-1998 Dodge 5.9L Cummins provides you safety and comfort while driving around the country. Descending grades can be a hazardous and tricky situation, resulting in over heated service and trailer brakes, that leads to brake fade, excessive wear, and costly unwarranted repairs. BD Engine brake has been the industries time proven variable regulating back-pressure exhaust brake.

Controlled by a lighted On/Off toggle switch or optional stick-mounted rocker switch for manual transmissions, the BD brake communicates with the engines electronic idle verification board for quick engagement. How it works: Using BDs exclusive Variable butterfly Technology, providing peak retarding power throughout the engines rpm range unlike some models that rely on a hole/orifice within the butterfly to calibrate back-pressure only in the higher engine RPM .

BDs turbo-mount design bolts in place of the factory elbow between the turbo and the exhaust system. The advantage to regulating the butterfly vs. other brands is: The Butterfly is constantly exercising thus reducing the possibility of carbon and rust deposit forming that can cause premature wear and binding. Furthermore no maintenance or lubricating is required providing miles of trouble free service.  

The BD Brakes rugged cast-iron housing incorporates BDs exclusive AlumiBronze bushing and positive sealing piston ring, no blind holes for carbon and rust to form, and miles of leak free retarding.Stainless steel butterfly shaft that has proven to stand up under the harsh, high-heat conditions of the exhaust environment, the offset butterfly valve wont stick, and has been strategically placed in the elbow so that it wont impede exhaust flow when in the open position.

Brake valve is actuated by a powerful, three-inch vacuum cylinder. Automatic-equipped trucks require BDs programmable AutoLoc and PressureLoc kits (sold separately) to electronically control torque converter clutch engagement. This addition effectively reduces slippage, resulting in peak retarding performance as well as lower transmission temperatures.

Questions and Answers

Does heavy duty valve springs have to be installed on a 93 5.9 ?
View Staff Answer 
89-98 Dodge 5.9L 12 Valve Cummins diesels have a light valve spring configuration. To get the most braking power out of your exhaust brake, we recommend installing 60LB upgraded valve springs on the exhaust side of the valvetrain.
