    Looking at the Fleece Cheetah and one question is how does the E-Brake work on yours?

    There are several options.

    If you would like to keep your exhaust brake, you could go with a direct fit replacement like Fleece Cheetah, or you could do a 2nd or 3rd Generation swap where you would need to replace your exhaust manifold make other modifications.

    @DDP can advise on your best option for your situation and price the parts.

    Please keep us posted.

    Exhaust brake works just like stock with the Cheetah fleece.

    Sounds a little better too.

    Always have the option of replacing the actuator, the nozzles, and the unison ring.

    It's not a horrible job.

    I looked at the cheetah but opted for a 2nd Gen swap.

    Power vs. cost type deal.

    So I didn't do anything fancy, just went with the reman of the same turbo.

    I ordered a new front wheel bearing and your joints.

    I still need to pull the turbo off and do trans oil, oil, and fuel filter.

    I did the same thing and didn't regret it.

    Less complexity and the turbo should last a very long time if cared for properly.

    EGT's dropped about 150 degrees too.

    So, I got the turbo removed, which was a pain in the arse, waiting for the new one.

    I installed the new u-joints on the front axles but have yet to install them.

    I was going to wait till the shocks came in and install those first.

    Did an oil change, transmission oil, filter change.

    New crankcase filter.
