You in NO WAY need a catch can to successfully run a CCV mod. I have never seen a drip from mine in 20k miles and in temps as high as 110F with 215F oil temp.

Yea I just leave the hose open but if you want, you can run a little filter. There is no need for the filter though.

Just make sure the entire run of hose is downhill. Or supposedly oil will accumulate and make a plug causing oil to find your weakest seal. I have mine run in front of the fuel tank, there is a spot you can wedge the end in and hold it, been like that for 16k and no trouble.

Re: easy CCV mod question

If anything buy one of those aluminum water bottles from the dollar store and modify that for a catch can. I believe a 3/4 npt fitting will screw into the top...

I have not seen where a catch can was EVER needed with the CCV mod in my truck. I run mine straight down and I have yet to see a drop from it hit the ground.
