Since the VT365 is the same basic engine as the Ford 6.0 used in the pickups and Ford medium duty trucks, any exhaust brake for them should work on the VT365. May be some chassis differences (international vs Ford) for some potential mounting differences, but the basic brake parts should be the same.

After an extensive search... Pac BVrake Jacobson (Jake Brake) and a number of others, Navistar said there is no such thing (They do not have it so it doesn't exist I guess) I did find one in PA. Reasonable Price

Here is the info.

After I get it in, I'll let you know how it is. After a week of mountians, I know we are due.
