Crankcase evacuation

Hey I was wondering if anyone has tried running a crankcase evac setup on their 6.0? I was looking at it more to keep my intercooler and piping clean and hopefully keep the boots on. I figured a straight piped 6.0 with a gm checkvalve with 4 or 5 feet of heater hose would be just right to get to the breather on the valve cover. Let me know your thoughts.

I just ran 1" hose down to the frame just behind the cab, no problems and haven't smelled it. My turbo is leaking a little oil though, so it was a waste to try to keep the intercooler clean

Give NCHornet, he makes a nice set up, easy to install and has a good price. It has a catch can that you can drain when you want. I drain during oil changes. I think Rual with Stealth Automotive sells the same set up.

How so? I think it was a good use of my time and it keeps all that oil residue out of my boost tubes, IC and the turbo.

For me it was a waste of time because my turbo is leaking slightly. If I could go back, I would have left it alone for now.

Just trying to understand. Your turbo having a leak has nothing to do with the CCV mod, right? The CCV isn't the cause of your turbo leaking is it?

Nope.

His turbo leaking is a separate issue from the CC venting oil directly into the turbo. He should probably fix his turbo...
