Default Powerstroke Exhaust Brake

I'm working on a project for work involving a 6.0L Powerstroke.

Question I have is... Several company's make an exhaust brake for the Powerstroke but Ford/International does not offer an exhaust brake option like Dodge/cummins does, will adding this void the warranty and or make the engine less reliable? Thank you.

Are you sure that Navistar/International never had one available to light/medium industrial or truck applications.
