CCV mod with S&B?

So i have a S&B intake sitting around that im waiting to install and i was looking at it tonight and noticed the ccv port doesnt have the nipple like the stock intake so i was curious what you guys who have a S&B are doing to plug them. I need to be able to remove it for emissions testing.

I ran into the same delema. I got up with Lubbock guy who makes a plug for the stock intake, billet aluminum, like 15 bucks I think is what he charges i think, hope he doesn't mind me putting that out there. Anyway, its designed to press right into the factory hole, which has as you mentioned a little nipple thing on it. I just used a cheap gromet around the plug, it was very tight to get it in, and his plug has a lip machined on it so it'd be impossible for it to get sucked in. Then I ran tubing down behind the turbo, along the heater tube, covered with sticky ductwork adhesive to orotect from turbo heat, then into the exhaust with a fitting welded in that looks jist like the factory ccv tube that sticks into the factory intake, only metal (like 8 bucks from summit, just drill a hole into exhaust and weld it in) , pulls good vaccum on the hose, and wasn't too hard to do, but in retrospect, I'd maybe just leave it all the hell alone and leave the ccv hooked up. I don't think there's a ton of benefit doing it. I can get some pics up later this weekend.

Okay thanks, I actually have a ccv reroute already and the plug from alan (not installed) that was my main concern as how to make the aluminum plug stay in the hole. Thanks!

I took a bolt and used rubber washers and made a plug. Double nut on the outside so it won't come undone. Has worked fine so far for me.

Do not try and silicone a pipe plug in there, that will end in disaster.

Yeah, I just went to advance or autozone and bought one of their cheesy "gromet kits" and found one that fit the hole good, but was a tight squeeze to get the plug in, which is a good thing I suppose.

You could always cut the nipple out of the factory intake, relocate it to the S&B intake with a good quality epoxy that won't break down under heat and Alan's plug will fit the intake.
