There's a guy floating around here with 780k on his unrebuilt cummins. Now, according to duramax and ford guys, his truck should have fallen completely apart around the engine 7.8 times, since they all know that dodge trucks are junk and only last 100k before they spontaneously disassemble themselves while going down the road. That has happened to me 2.76 times, and both times I was only wearing boxers while driving so it was really embarrassing.
Yeah, if they had just the drive by shots I would be very skeptical, but I watched the video over and over and with the in bed shots I'd be very surprised if it's fake. The camera in bed sound and the revs at the end just seem to match too perfect.
If it's real it'll be very interesting to find out more info about it.

it's the pipe that is making most of that sound you can get a exhaust brake for a first gen you just have to have bigger spring's on the Valves .

Cant say what is actually in the video, but the sound at least, is a compression release brake (typically referred to as a jake brake, which is incorrect terminology)
The 5.9/6.7s have always had exhaust brakes available, basically just a butterfly valve in the exhaust, or in the case of a VGT, the veins close up to produce the same effect. These sound nothing like a compression release brake (like in the video)
A compression bleeder brake would be much easier for any joe-blow to build, but again the sound would differ from what you hear in the video

They put up another video today with engine shot... Also posted this message:
"Sorry to keep being so vague, but our attorney has warned us to "keep our powder dry" for a little while longer. We included an under-hood shot, but unfortunately cannot reveal the method by which we are opening the valves just yet."
