Crank Case Ventilation

when ever i re-route my ccv hose is it would it be a good idea to cut a hole and weld a nipple onto my exhaust pipe at an angle toward the outlet and route it like that so i wont have to worry about it dripping oil?

that is going to smell... why not just purcahse a CCV kit that routes the oil to a canister that you drain every couple of months?

From what ive read on several threads, nope! It will cause a presure change and turn your truck into an oil fountain. Just do a real kit like Raul@StealtAutomotive sells. Thats the only one that would be worth running on a vehicle in my opinion.

I would think that would cause the truck to smoke when the oil running down the inside of the exhaust pipe would get hot from the exhaust gasses. That's just my opinion.

It will burn it off, the problem is if it isn't placed at exactly the right angle in the right location you will cause negative pressure and turn your powerstroke into a oil fountain, just isn't worth the risk as it is slim you would get it right the first, or tenth time around. Use the kit that Raul sells.
