BD Diesel Brakeloc - Automatic Trans | 95-03 7.3 Powerstroke
Make the Most of Your Power Stroke's exhaust backpressure valve! BD's BrakeLoc connects to the EBPV control wire, turning the factory valve into an electronically-controlled exhaust brake. Includes the BD AutoLoc to maintain lock-up when the exhaust brake is activated ensuring that 100% of the retarding force is being transferred in 3rd and 4th gears. Note that, because the EBPV is activated hydraulically, there is typically a 2-3 second delay between the time the valve is actuated and engine retarding occurs. While the BrakeLoc is an economical alternative to an exhaust brake, it is NOT intended as a substitute. For quicker, more effective braking, we recommend a BD exhaust brake system, which utilizes our Variable Orifice Technology, and won't stick like the stock EPB valve can.
- Cost effective solution of engine retarding for towing with the automatic transmission on the Ford PowerStrokes
- Commands the Exhaust Back Pressure (EBP) valve to activate as well as keeping the lock-up clutch of the torque converter to stay engaged to allow up to 100% of the retarding force to be transferred while in 3rd and 4th gear
- Transmission oil temperatures will remain low because of little or no slippage occurring in the converter in these gears
- For more efficient retarding use or medium to heavy loads use BD Exhaust Brake 2033143, 2023144, 1037143 or 1027144
