No.

There is nothing in the exhaust in a Dodge, no valves, or diverters.

After the turbo, it's a resonator (unless a '04.5+, then it's a cat) and a muffler and 4" pipe in between the tailpipe and turbo.

Only a little flapper valve connected to the wastegate to allow the exhaust gas to completely bypass the exhaust housing, which does the exact opposite of the exhaust brake. Free up exhaust, and allow more exhaust flow.

how hard would it be to add the exhaust brake to the 6.7L?
