Mack – Scania Cooperation


Recommended Posts

And now we'll get to have some of that Scania (along with MAN) technology in International's with VW (parent of Scania and MAN) buying into them.

Give us the V8 9900i!!!! LOL.

Does the Scania V8 have an Engine brake function (Dynatard) they don't mention it!

That in my opinion was one of the down falls of the v 8 lack of engine braking!

Scania offers the world's most effective exhaust brake, complimented by the superb Scania Retarder. Once you experience the retarder, it's hard to go back to a Jake brake.

Here's some info on the Scania Retarder:

yes it has... my 15.6L engine had 408hp braking power maybe not extremely strong in comparison to a J-brake i suppose ,but SCANIA chose as far as i recall in the late 80s for developing a wearfree hydraulic brake (retarder)integrated in/mounted at the backside of their gearbox... adding an extra 610hp/3500Nm of braking power in my case. The latest 2021 version delivers up to 4700nm braking torque..... so their classic engine brake itself hasn't improved that much throughout the years because they didn't need to.
