Explain an InLineMount Exhaust Brake?

InLineMount – Some vehicle configurations do not allow for clearance around the turbocharger, for installation of a DirectMount exhaust brake, these applications require an InLineMount. Inline exhaust brakes require a minimum 7" of straight exhaust pipe which is then cut out and exhaust flange adapters are installed in its place. Ensure the exhaust brake is mounted as close to the turbocharger as possible and away from road spray.

NOTE: Clamped joints that exist between the brake and the engine must be welded to ensure that the joints cannot separate or leak under pressure. No flex pipe is allowed between the exhaust brake and the turbocharger.

Explain an DirectMount Exhaust Brake?

DirectMount –This application is preferred because of the reduced number of connections between the exhaust brake and the turbocharger. The mating surfaces are both machined cast iron which eliminates any chance of exhaust leaks.

For vehicles with straight back systems shortening of the header pipe is required to maintain an adequate amount of flex pipe. Vehicles with a 90° header pipe use a cast elbow to interface with the stock header pipe. Pacbrake offers replacement header pipes for some truck models.

When should a turbo mount with a cast adapter be used?

This application is the preferred option for vehicles with a tight 90° bent header pipe post turbocharger. The cast adapter is constructed from cast iron with machined mating surfaces on both ends, eliminating any chance of exhaust leaks.
