Questions on ccv mod.

Is there any reason that I can't just put a 90 degree piece of pvc on oil fill end and angle it up with filter over it. It just pleads off pressure correct?

I was planning on running it to rear of truck but was gonna see if there was an east way out first.

You could, but if it spews oil it will get saturated quick and begin making a mess. Oil has to go somewhere eventually.

If your truck doesn't spew any noticeable oil, them it will work for the time being until you can route it back. But you might as well do it all at the same time.

I wouldn't want it under my hood. A guy over on PSN did it and I think he ended up extending it out because of the vapors under the hood.

Look up the tractor supply company CCV mod thread on here. I got all the stuff from Rural king for $33 including heater hose.

I guess ill just run it down. But I don't like the idea of mounting it on the outside if the frame. It would be too easy for mud to clog that thing up. And on the inside is the exhaust.

Some people have actually talked about tapping into their exhaust with the CCV reroute. Weld a fitting in with a good down stream angle so that vacuum is created, get a 1" OD piece of stainless pipe that is about 12" in length, and run the heater hose into that. If I was keeping my truck, I was going to attempt it. Don't plan on keeping the truck much longer though.

That would also prevent the awful stench from the haze because it would come out of your exhaust pipe.

Don't mean to pry, but how come you want to get rid of your truck Jeff?? I thought you loved the new turbo set up? What's making you want to get rid of her?

Mileage and truck issues associated with that mileage starting to annoy me.

Well that's vague.

Tuning no longer working with the amount of mods you've made? Mileage going down now instead of up? Going to an older truck, newer truck? What's the story?
