Banks Speedbrake Electronic Exhaust Brake


Why settle for primitive exhaust brakes that barely brake? When your diesel is working hard to haul loads and navigates hills, step up to the world’s premiere, most advanced brake system— the all-electronic Banks SpeedBrake! The Speedbrake is the first all-electronic braking system ever created. It gives you maximum braking power by adjusting your turbo's variable geometry vanes, engineered together with specific and deliberate geat selection and torque converter clutch application. The results is awesome stopping power and peace of mind while towing. Best of all, you don't have to make any modifications to your exhaust, and the user experience is totally automatic. You set your desired downhill speed, and the SpeedBrake does the rest!

An all-electronic virtuoso of braking technology, the SpeedBrake’s plug-in connection makes for a clean and simple installation without cutting or tapping into vital wire harnesses. No need to crawl under your truck to cut up the exhaust system — no mechanical “adjustments” necessary to insure its function. SpeedBrake uses the trucks own components giving you the safety needed with no added mechanical parts to fool around with or second guess.




SpeedBrake has no competition and makes no compromises. As a smart device, the SpeedBrake becomes an active component of your vehicle, constantly monitoring and adjusting systems achieving the speed you set. Using its patented technology the SpeedBrake controls your transmission’s shifting, locks and unlocks the torque converter and infinitely varies the VG turbo’s vanes to hold your set speed and maximize stopping performance to ensure that you have the safety and confidence for the long haul.



Get more effective braking than is possible with a simple valve assembly. Operating modes On (Maximum braking: High, Med and Low strength settings). Speed Control (Maintains pre-selected target speed. Easy gauge based control). Displays vehicle speed, current braking effort (relating to vane position), trans temp, engine coolant temp and much more. OBDII scan tool capability (reads/interprets/clears codes). System Status Indicator with on-screen alerts (excessive coolant or trans temps, for example). Easy, clean install (all-electronic design requires only a few simple underhood connections), no modifications to the exhaust system are needed. In testing, dramatically outperformed all competitive products in basic braking function (and nobody but Banks has anything like a Speed Control Mode!)
