Hello Scotty, I am wondering myself if engine braking (manual gearbox) will hurt the transmission or the clutch? For example, I am going down a hill and car is in 2nd gear (rpm is around 2000-2500) will it hurt the parts?
Another case: using it to slow down on a straight road... Could it hurt the transmission or the clutch?
Best Regards, Cristi

So the best is not to use engine brake all the time

no serious hurt, but realize brakes are pretty cheap to replace, and clutches are not and you will get more clutch wear that way
