Turbo Brake

The Wifes 07' is the one used to pull the Toy Hauler. It stops fine and the Allison really slows it down very well, just thinking more is always better. What do you guys think the Banks or Fleece? Unless you guys think an exhaust brake works better? From what I've read I think the turbo brake would be the way to go. Also will they work with the Edge (wiring wise)? The trailers dry weight is 13,450lbs ish GVWR is 18k. Real life experience/knowledge please

Can't speak for the Banks/Fleece setup. I've got the Edge Race Evo, on the level 2 tow tune, the turbo brake feature is awesome. Slows the truck and 5ver down twice as fast as just the Allison by itself. Sounds great when it's doing it as well! Chris
