CCV mod

For those of you that have installed the CCV mod from Stealth, where did you mount it? What is the best hose to use that will stand up to the oily residue?

I mounted it on the driverside frame rail, there are 2 holes right before you get to the second door. The holes line up perfectly. I just got something like 11 feet (I think) of hose from Lowes. Just heater hose, but Im sure there are better options. Its not like its pouring through the hose with pressure or anything so I didnt go crazy with the type of hose.

I have had it on the truck for prob 10k miles, works great. Let me know if I can help with anything else. Or I can give you NcHornet's (the inventor of the CCV sold through Stealth) email and he could help.

that spot works fine. I done the atmoshere mod and used 1'' fuel line. Expensive but will not rot away from petroleum contact. I do not know if the same rules apply when using synthetic oil vs dino oil.

Type in "nchornets ccv mod" in the search bar. Or just "ccy mod"...youll get more info than I could ever type.

The "atmosphere mod" is a ccv mod, but instead of there being a catch can at the end of the hoses to catch the oil, it just lets it out into the atmosphere, or, your driveway, or the road. Its not a ton of oil so thats why ppl do it, but I have the catch can cause I cant stand the thought of oil just goin on the ground. Then, I just empty it every oil change.

the stock ccv vents out of the top of the crankcase on the drivers side. it is vented into the intake after the maf sensor. It over time vents an oily resedue thru your turbo and into your intercooler tubes. Over time it will inindate your intercooler boots and ruin them. The atmosphere mod just runs a tube uner the truck. It can be stinky if you dont run it far enough away from the doors. NCHornets mod (sold by stealth) routs the ccv into a catch can and back to the stock location. It keeps the oily residue out of your tubes and keeps your intercooler boots oil free.


Mine is run under the drivers door like the others state. I just used heater hose from lowes. I have 130,000 miles on mine and it has perfomed great.

Good info guys! Main thing I was worried about was the type of hose so it doesn't break down. I'll go to lowes and check out their hose. Is it cheaper there then from say somewhere like autozone or O'reilly?

Thanks for the replies!

I wouldnt think theyd be any cheaper than Lowes..give or take a few cents? Who knows..Id just go to lowes, roll the stuff off the spool, cut, and go to the register and pay. I think I got like 11ft, and it was just enough. I think it was 11. Maybe get 12 just to be sure.

3/4" ID SILICONE HEATER HOSE Blue to 350 F Sold by Foot | eBay

This is what I used for my ccv mod that is vented to atmosphere. It is oil resistant. It doesnt say it in this link but I researched it on the manufacturer's website. Mine doesnt smell too bad even on the hot days and I run my oil at 208F all day long so it gets good and hot.
