CCV routed back into the exhaust?

Anyone tried welding a evac tube toward the back of the exhaust and route the CCV to it?

Ive done it before on an old 7.3 truck and it worked great. No oily mess anywhere and nothing to check and drain.

Yes I have read it has been done on a 6.4. Pretty much the same process as putting it on the onld 7.3. The key as always is to have the bung welded in at an angle so you dont create a possitive pressure in the CCV.

You also don't want too much vacuum created.

Correct.

Which has anyone thought about how much vacuum the stock system creates pulling into the turbo?

Quite a bit I'm sure. Probably too much.
