Banks' revolutionary design produces stronger braking power than other exhaust brakes. The large-bore housing, streamlined to increase airflow and diffuse exhaust, adds to engine power when Banks Brake is inactive. Banks engineered in a timed valve closure rate to prevent backpressure spikes common to other exhaust brakes and provide smooth operation. Every unit is factory tested and never requires calibration.
Includes: Cast, large-bore brake housing; High-force, 4" vacuum actuator; Computerized Brake Controller (CBC); Large butterfly valve with super-alloy shaft-and-bearing system; Stainless, 4" Monster T.O.P. turbine-outlet pipe with ceramic-matrix heat shield; In-dash switch; Wire loom; Mounting hardware.
Up to 12% more stopping force than standard exhaust brakes; increases engine power when not in use; no maintenance; computerized brake controller.
SmartLock® Trans Brake
(Vehicles with automatic transmissions) Banks' electronic braking device automatically activates when conditions call for braking. SmartLock locks the torque converter and simultaneously raises transmission-line pressure, to smoothly reduce vehicle speed. Besides saving wear-and-tear on your service brakes, SmartLock prolongs automatic transmission durability by increasing its holding capacity, eliminating excessive clutch slippage, and cooling transmission-fluid temperatures.
For use with Banks Brake
Includes: Integrated electronic SmartLock module; Wire loom; Mounting hardware.
