12 valve exhaust brake 5 speed

I have a 98 12 valve with a 5 speed and need an exhaust brake but would like to know what one is best for my particular truck. Help is appreciated.

I have a BD but the pac-breaks are the best IMO

To many mods to list just ask.

yes they are - but worth every penny if u tow heavy (n even if u dont)

*the i.d. is not what they advertise so i dont know how concerned u r with flow but if u hav spent anywheres near as much as i have on ur ex sys then u will want to order one size over and hav pac send the correct reducers to make it work

iow if you have a 4" ex sys make sure u order the 5" prxb

the 4" brake aint 3.5" on the i.d.

Just dont buy the stock style one from Pac brake. All the ones listed for your application replace the back of your turbo. At some point you will want to upgrade turbos and your exhaust brake will no longer work unless you run a HX35/40 hybrid. Either upgrade to an HX40 flanged turbo now or do what was mentioned earlier and buy one that mounts in the exhaust pipe. Only drawback is this style will take a little longer to generate back presure but will allow you to go with any turbo you like later on.
