CCV Dump ?s

I just preformed a ccv dump on my 04. I noticed right off the bat once the truck was warm my turbo lag is almost gone. It is awsome. After a couple days I pulled it back apart and returned the ccv back to stock and went and drove it. The lag is back. Pulled it back apart and dumped the ccv. When warm almost no lag and when cold the lag is almost not there. I was wondering if those of you that dumped the ccv experienced this. If not why am I geting such better response out of the truck?

Just guessing here but maybe because you are no longer burning oil vapor laden air it is burning better and providing a better exhaust flow to the turbo.

I dont know how the stealth kit works, but I just dumped mine. The inlet is capped into the intake elbow, and I used 1in heater hose and ran it down the frame and dumped it behinde the rear leaf spring shackle. Does the stealth kit re-curculate it like the other kits I have seen?

What did you use to cap off the inlet hole? Did you make a catch can or just let it flow? I am going to do this too but I think I am just going to route it down for enough so that I can mount this catch can my cousin made for me

I would like to know also how you dumped yours. Sounds like it would make a mess without the catch can. Wonder if you should take intercooler and pipes off and clean oil out?

Guys, I've been driving diesels since the 1970s, cars, trucks, European, USA, you name it.

But you're speaking Greek to me. What the H is "dumping CCV"? I have an F-350 I ust to pull a Kubota backhoe. All Diesel. Any tricks to improve MPG gratefully accepted, but I gotta be able to understand the language!

Thanks,
JR

It will definately drip on the ground just running the hose. Sometimes you can smell the oil as well. I'm going to replace the CAC boots when I install one.
