    go from -74 to -150 across the whole table then go to -250 at the higher RPM and smooth it down to the -150 at the lower RPM. The bigger the negative number the more engine braking effect up until the turbo vane is closed all the way at which you won't notice any more of a braking effect. Play with it and see what you like.

    If it has an engine brake button or a way to turn it on or off in the cab then yes it should work. A waste gate and turbo vanes operate on the same principle, they both control boost so it should work just fine.

    That's the unfortunate part of a waste gated turbo vs a actual exhaust brake or VGT turbo. Its also why you don't have an exhaust brake button, at least now It will brake as well as it can but it will not come close to the braking power of a VGT.
