New Jacobs Engine Brake for International A26 Engine

Jacobs Vehicle Systems®, a leading manufacturer of diesel and natural gas engine retarding systems and valve actuation mechanisms, has launched a compression release engine brake for the International A26 engine.

By leveraging the benefits of the new Variable Geometry Turbo, Jacobs reports that “the A26 engine brake performance increased up to 67% at lower engine speeds and higher altitudes.  This engine update improves driveability, increases foundation brake life, and lowers total cost of ownership of International trucks equipped with the A26 engine brake.”

“With this enhanced Jacobs Engine Brake, drivers experience a reduction in the need for downshifting and improved NVH (Noise, Vibration, and Harshness),” said Sergio Sgarbi, President, Jacobs Vehicle Systems.

The Jacobs Engine Brake is now available on the A26 engine and will come factory installed on all International® LTtm Series of long-haul vehicles and RHtm Series of regional haul vehicles
