Product Details

Product Name: Brakeloc Exhaust Brake
Manufacturer: BD Diesel

Electronically controls the stock PowerStroke heat riser valve and locks up the convertor clutch. An inexpensive exhaust brake for lighter loads.

BD's BrakeLoc computer is designed to close the heat riser valve on the Ford Powerstroke and will maintain convertor lock up until a pre-selected vehicle speed. The BrakeLoc improves retarding horsepower from 5 RHP, when the clutch is not engaged, to 200RHP when engaged.

"Electronic" in this case, refers to simply connecting to the engine heat riser valves control wire and signaling to close the valve. A delay of 2-3 seconds occurs before the valve closes and exhaust backpressure builds to retard the engine revolutions vehicle speed. Automatic transmission equipped trucks have this function combined with the BD AutoLoc or TorqLoc computer. These trucks only require a basic wiring harness.

A stock automatic equipped Ford truck, prior to 1999, will disengage the convertor clutch when the accelerator pedal returns to idle, the brake pedal is touched or when the truck accelerates. Since 1999, the convertor clutch will remain engaged until the brake pedal is touched. When the convertor clutch is not engaged the engine free wheels and the engine rpm falls to idle with no transfer of retarding horsepower being achieved. BD's BrakeLoc will maintain convertor lock up until a pre-selected vehicle speed. 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 the vacuum-actuated BD Brake exhaust brake system, which utilizes their Variable Orifice Technology, and won't stick like the stock heat riser can.
