A total system solution with enhanced transmission control for exhaust braking, Banks' direct-mount, no-maintenance exhaust brake has electronics that monitor critical engine and transmission parameters to maximize braking efficiency. It dramatically cuts downhill speeds without using the wheel brakes. This keeps brakes cool and ready for emergencies, and saves thousands in brake maintenance.
Optimizes exhaust flow when not engaged. Easy install; needs no drilling, cutting or modifications to stock wiring. Pays for itself in reduced brake wear and brake maintenance. Direct-mount exhaust brake dramatically cuts downhill speed without using wheel brakes. For use on Automatic Transmission equipped trucks.
US Patent #6,152,853 A. Test runs on a 7% grade in the vicinity of Southern California's daunting Cajon Pass were done with the gear selector in both Drive and 2nd. Tow/Haul mode was used in all cases, per Dodges recommendations. 55 mph was established at the top of the hill, and the foot brake was applied only if it became necessary to keep the vehicle at a safe speed (no greater than 65 mph). Multiple configurations were tested: stock, Banks Brake with Computerized Brake Controller and SmartLock® (CBC), PacBrake, Jacobs and BD.
All of the brakes tested were a direct mount configuration. Each of the competitive brakes was controlled by the vehicle ECM (an option that became available starting in the 2006 model year). In addition to road testing, flow bench testing was conducted on each of the brake assemblies.Excessive use of foot brake required during descents in Drive: indication of possible runaway condition. Heavy use of foot brake required in 2nd gear to prevent excessive redlining & consequent engine damage. Banks Brake with CBC and SmartLock ®. The only exhaust brake that didnt require use of the foot brake in Drive. Superior airflow with brake open.
By far, the quickest braking response time. Transmission line pressure around 133 psi during descent. This added line pressure keeps transmission clutches firmly applied. Over 50% more protective line pressure than the others provide.Vacuum pump produces no audible noise over normal engine sound. Uses a noisy electric pressure pump. Insufficient braking power: had to use foot brake during descents in Drive. Weakest of all exhaust brakes tested.
Doesnt operate in 1st gear. More restrictive when open; hurts performance. Automatic-equipped trucks prior to 06 require BDs programmable Tow Loc and Pressure Loc kits to electronically control torque converter clutch engagement.Transmission line pressure just 83 psi during descent. Transmission line pressure just 82 psi during descent. On/Off brake activity while in cruise condition results in noisy release of air pressure. Most restrictive of all brakes when open; hurts performance. Exhaust pressure regulation requires multiple moving parts that could stick or fail. Cast, large-bore brake housing assembly; High-force 4-1/4 vacuum actuator; Belt-driven vacuum pump with serpentine belt for quiet operation; Large butterfly valve with super-alloy shaft-and-bearing system; Wire loom; Mounting hardware. 2005 DODGE RAM 3500 5.9L DIESEL. 2005 DODGE RAM 2500 5.9L DIESEL. 2004 DODGE RAM 3500 5.9L DIESEL. 2004 DODGE RAM 2500 5.9L DIESEL.
