Exhaust Brake Valve Installation
Locate the turbo down pipe from underneath the vehicle. You will need to locate an
8” section of pipe to mount the exhaust brake assembly. Be sure to check
clearances between the brake and the transmission and frame rail. Mark the
desired cut section and remove the pipe for welding. The exhaust adapter closest
to the turbo will need to be welded. The rear adapter can be secured using the
stainless steel band clamp. Ensure that the brake is installed in the right flow
direction - there is an arrow molded into the casting on the valve assembly
indicating the correct exhaust flow path.
To install the brake, use the supplied v-band clamp for the front adapter and tighten
the two bolts to secure the rear adapter to the brake casting.

Air Compressor Installation (If applicable)
If your vehicle has a factory mounted air compressor, please move to the next
installation section.
You will need to mount the air compressor underneath the cab on the drivers side.
Select a position that will eliminate any road debris or water from contacting the unit.
Use the supplied mounting hardware to secure the air compressor unit assembly to
the frame rail underneath the driver’s cab. You will also need to connect the power
and ground for the wiring harness to the battery located on the passenger side or to
the power point and ground underneath of the hood.

Air Regulator Installation
If you installed the BD Air Compressor kit already you can skip this step.
For vehicles equipped with a factory installed air compressor, you will need to “tee”
into the air tank supply line and route this into the air regulator ‘IN” port.
Install the air regulator assembly in a clean environment close to the factory air tank.
Make sure that the installation location is still easily accessible as you will have to
adjust the regulator at a later time.
You will need to run the nylon tubing from the air tank ‘tee’ into the regulator IN port
(>). You can use the supplied quick connect fittings to accomplish this.
Air Solenoid Valve Installation
Mount the air solenoid on the inside of the frame rail just across from the exhaust
brake. Clean a section of the frame for the installation of the ground point. Use the
supplied hardware to bolt the solenoid to an existing hole in the frame rail.
Route the supplied nylon tubing from the “IN” port of the solenoid valve to previously
installed air regulator “OUT” (>) port. The “CYL” or “OUT” port on the valve should
go to the quick connector located on the exhaust brake valve cylinder you installed
earlier.
The air solenoid installation kit also includes a small wiring harness which contains a
noise suppression diode. This should be installed to the electrical connectors on the
solenoid valve.

Vehicle Wiring
You will need to remove both passenger side fender shields.
LB7 Engine
Locate the vehicles ECM and remove the second (or lower) ECM connector.
Connect the supplied ECM pin connector to the supplied 18 awg grey wire. You will
need to insert the pin connector into port #7 of the ECM connector. You may need
to poke a hole through the weather seal to ease the installation of the pin. Once the
pin is inserted you may now reconnect the lower ECM connector.
There are two pins included in the application kit – one for an LB7 computer and
one for an LLY computer – The LB7 motor uses the longer pin terminal. There will
be a plastic pin in the location that you will need to remove before installing the ECM
pin. The pin and wire assembly that you just inserted should travel to connector 86
of the relay assembly.

LLY Engine
Locate the vehicles ECM,
remove
the
first
ECM
connector.
Connect the
supplied ECM pin connector
to the supplied 18 awg grey
wire. You will need to insert
the short pin connector into
port #45 of the ECM
connector. You may need to
poke a hole through the
weather seal to ease the
installation of the pin. Once
the pin is inserted you may
now reconnect the lower
ECM connector.
There maybe a plastic blank
pin in the location that you
will need to remove before
installing the ECM pin.
On some LLY models you will find a PURPLE in place in pin location 45. You will
need to cut this wire and connect the supplied relay harness’s grey wire to the
ECM’s purple wire. The other side of the wire should be left floating.
The pin and wire assembly that you just inserted should travel to connector 86 of the
relay assembly.
Next install the supplied relay harness to side of the ECM support bracket. Use the
supplied sheet metal screw to fasten it the support structure.
Connect the fused red wire lead to 12V battery red quick access point. This wire
should travel to pin 30 of the relay assembly.
Just below the ECM and TCM you will need to locate the outer 30 pin weather pack
connector (C101). This connector will have the locking blue latch on it. You can
separate the two connectors for easy access. At pin C7 you should find a black with
white wire (or tan/white), cut this wire and attach the supplied BD wiring harness
using the butt connector to the wiring harness end, not the connector end.

LLY Exhaust Brake Switch Addendum
Note: Some LLY C4500/5500 models have not been pre-wired from GM to accept
the factory exhaust brake switch. To check for this, locate Connecter #2 of the ECM
and check for a Light Green wire on Pin # 11. If it exists, the vehicle has been prewired. If not, you will need to use the extra LLY ECM pin (P/N#: 15356827) and
insert it into Pin #11 of the C2 connection of the ECM and wire it back to the factory
switch. You can either wire it to Pin B3 of the C202 connector (which is located just
behind the factory exhaust brake switch location) or you can wire it directly to the
switch. The ECM is looking for ground or low signal to activate the exhaust brake.

Exhaust Brake Testing
Note: The exhaust brake will not operate until the vehicle’s water temperature
has reached a normal state.
You will need to connect to an air pressure gauge to the exhaust brake valve
assembly to monitor the brake’s performance.
NOTE: The butterfly valve has been preset at the factory and should not be
adjusted.
Start the vehicle and take it for a test drive. Press the exhaust brake activation to
make the switch is illuminated when activate. Also on some vehicle models an
indicator lamp will light on the gauge cluster when the exhaust brake is active. The
light may only activate once the engine temperature and vehicle speed have been
met.
Accelerate up to a chosen speed and lift off of the throttle. The exhaust brake
should engage quickly. Peak back pressure should reach 55 psi, if you have not
reach this pressure check for exhaust leak in all the flanges. You may also turn the
air pressure regulator clockwise to increase the back pressure. Continue on with
the test and make sure the exhaust brake quickly releases once you step back on
the throttle.
CAUTION: Do NOT exceed 55 psi of backpressure.
NOTE: Over the next two weeks, the backpressure at idle may rise due to initial
carbon build up and the brake valve will need to be adjusted again.
Check for any exhaust leaks and recheck all connections and hoses for security and
interference from moving or heated items. After about 100 miles (160 km), retorque the turbo exhaust clamp and flange bolts.
NOTE: THE EXHAUST BRAKE WILL NOT ENGAGE UNTIL THE VEHICLE IS UP
TO OPERATING TEMPERATURE AND 15MPH IS ATTAINED.

Maintenance & Trouble Shooting
To extend life of the valve assembly, do not operate the vehicle for extended
periods of time without activating the brake. We suggest activating the exhaust
brake at least a couple times a day while operating the vehicle to prevent any
carbon or rust build up on the inner parts of the valve assembly.
The hoses, wires, fittings and clamps should be inspected on a regular basis for any
deterioration, damage or leaks. Periodically clean the filter on the Air Compressor,
and, when cleaning the engine, cover the filter on the compressor to prevent
moisture from entering filter.
To increase the life of your exhaust brake we recommend daily operation. By
simply switching the brake on and off a couple times a day will prevent the
butterfly from sticking due to carbon build-up.
Following the diagrams in this manual, tracing hoses and wiring, checking continuity
through electric components or checking for any lines that are disconnected, should
solve any problems that may arise. If you have any problems or need replacement
parts, call us at 1-800-887-5030, between 8:30am and 4:30pm Pacific Time.
Exhaust Brake Adjustments
The butterfly valve should only be adjusted as a last resort. If you cannot reach a
desired 55psi of exhaust back pressure, the first step is to look for leaks either from
the clamps or from the welded pipes. Also look for leaks at the clamps located at
back of the turbo and also at the down pipe. If all connections are sealed you can
then use the adjusting regulator to increase the brake pressure. Turn the regulator
clockwise to increase the back pressure.
As a last resort you can adjust the butterfly valve. It is required that a standard 1/8”
NPT pressure gauge be used to make the necessary adjustments to the brake
valve.
You will need to loosen the stop bolt on the top of the exhaust brake. To do this first
loosing the lock nut then turn the stop bolt in or clockwise into the exhaust brake
frame. Activate the brake, at this time the brake will stroke until it hits the sides of
the valve casting. Re-adjust the stop bolt until it touches the actuator arm, at this
point turn it another 60°, so that the stop bolt pushes the valve just off the sides of
the casting. Tighten the locknut, and the check the back pressure gauge for the 1015 psi idle pressure. If you are still having problems please contact BD Technical
Support.
DO NOT SET THE VALVE TO STROKE AGAINST THE VALVE CASTING
WALLS; WARRANTY WILL BE VOIDED.

Operating Guidelines
Thank you for taking interest in the BD Engine Exhaust Brake. As a driver, you
probably already know the need for extra braking power that your vehicle requires
on the hills and long grades. With loads being towed behind you, the extra push
when slowing down or maintaining speed on downward grades can prove to be a
great strain on the vehicle hydraulic braking system, even to point of “burn-up”.
These guidelines were designed to offer a better understanding of the benefits of
using exhaust brakes and are based on material developed by the US Department
of Transportation National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The emphasis on today’s vehicles is to give the consumer a product that can give
them usable power with fuel efficiency. But, in the transition, the vehicles have lost
their natural braking power, making it more easy for the vehicle to continue to roll
and harder to stop. Of course, this gets more noticeable with the increase of weight,
on or behind the vehicle. This is where an exhaust brake becomes a useful tool in
increasing the driveline drag of the vehicle without the use of the hydraulic brakes.
A tool, with maximum use or even occasional use, that can reduce wear on
hydraulic braking parts and at the same time increase safety. The BD Exhaust
Brake can be used to help maintain a controlled vehicle speed on a downward
grade, as well as slowing the vehicle down for such times as turns or exit ramps,
without you using your hydraulic brakes.
However, the exhaust brake cannot be used as a parking brake or a service
brake to bring your vehicle to a complete stop.
By using a BD Exhaust Brake, the life and effectiveness of your hydraulic brakes will
increase. This is because of the decreased use of the hydraulic brakes in situations
like hills, the wear factor is reduced and there is less opportunity for your hydraulic
brakes to heat up which would reduce the efficiency.
When you ride your hydraulic brakes, make hard stops or have poorly adjusted
brakes, this creates high temperatures and as your brakes get hotter, the more
chance there is for fading or failure. With terrain that is a series of up and down
grades, the BD Exhaust Brake will aid in reducing exhaust valve warpage. Because
of the power needed to pull your vehicle and load up a hill, this generates a lot of
heat.
When you have reached the crest of the hill and are now coasting down the other
side, the heated valves are too quickly cooled. With the exhaust brake engaged,
the heat loss to the valves will be reduced, which can prevent valve warpage. When
the toggle switch is turned to the “On” position, the valve is activated every time the

driver takes his foot off of the throttle pedal. When the driver puts pressure back on
the throttle pedal, the relay is activated and the valve opens again.
Exhaust brakes are designed to operate with the throttle at idle, not to be used in
conjunction with cruise controls, and not designed to aid in gear shifting. Such
cases could cause damage to engine and/or the exhaust brake. Vehicles may
require downshifting to obtain the necessary retarding force.
Automatic transmissions with lock-up clutches in the converters can achieve the
best retarding force with the use of a clutch control device (i.e. AutoLoc).
Incorporated with the BD Exhaust Brake, there is a pressure regulating system that
will control the created backpressure. If the backpressure reaches the set limit, the
exhaust valve will open slightly to relieve the excess pressure.
The brake pressure at idle is required to be checked and adjusted at time of
installed, two weeks after installed, and on a regular twice a year interval.
Using a standard pressure gauge and the pressure port on the exhaust valve, the
brake pressure at idle must be set between 10 and 15 psi. The best scenario for
exhaust braking is when going down hill, select a gear that lets you maintain a
constant speed with little or no use of the hydraulic brakes, or, the same gear that
would be used to go up the same grade of hill. This also depends on the weight,
load or road conditions that the vehicle will come upon.
Therefore, in summary, by using the BD Exhaust Brake, you reduce the need for
use of your hydraulic brakes in situations where you need to slow down or maintain
(i.e. hills, off ramps, corners, approaching speed changes or traffic lights). By
reducing the use of your hydraulic brakes in these situations, this reduces the heat
build up, as well as wear and damage to linings and drums. And, when you reduce
these factors, you save your hydraulic brakes for when you really need them (i.e. for
stopping or emergencies).
The BD Exhaust Brake is not a substitute for your hydraulic brakes and, cannot
correct or compensate for poorly maintained or misadjusted brakes. But, when you
need to slow down or maintain a constant speed, the BD Exhaust Brake will be a
valuable and effective tool. Exhaust Brakes are more efficient at preventing than
correcting an over-speed condition.
Thank you and happy motoring,
