Nice! What did you do/use for the CCV mod? My coolant bypass filter is the on the way and I installed my AMSOIL oil bypass filter yesterday...did you consider doing one of those too?

YES, looking at Amsoil for next oil change. CCV Mod bought from Tractor Supply Company(on line), Hypro 1 inch Polypropylene Line Strainer with 50 mesh Stainless screen= $20.00. Then used 3/4 heater hose mounted it down on frame (clamped to frame mount) pass. side near coolant filter. Ran vent hose to rear of truck.

Gotcha a hybrid DIY system if you will...

As long as someone doesn't tell you that your truck is on fire! On my 6.0 Excursion I vented to atmosphere (and never had a problem with droplets, just vapor) and I had a lady pull up to me at a stoplight and tell me my truck was smoking/on fire. I didn't have a lot of blow-by on that truck for starters, so she must have been pretty dang observant...

The look of her face when I said, "it's OK ma'am, I know...it's a diesel" was priceless!

Ronin, If you dont mind me asking...How much was the amsoil set up? oil, filter and by pass filter?
I took it out for a test drive today....OMG...runs like a raped ape....cannot believe the power...and i was only on Mild...should get some real good fuel mileage on our trip cross country to North Carolina.
Today, after lots of research, found the factory keyless entry code, and got that system working.

Just shy of $420, (I'm a "preferred" customer, $20/year membership fee) and that's with an additional 12 feet of hose (had a little leftover) and the EaBP100 filter. I mounted it as high up on the frame rail as possible so I could position the filter in vertical (preferred) configuration. I'll be adding a FilterMag to it shortly (already have a Fumoto valve on the oil pan) so that will bring it up to about $500 (not including oil and oil filter). I ran an OilGuard on my 6.0 Excursion previously and liked it. The FS-2500 is likewise an excellent kit; they're just more expensive is all and it's a personal preference. Can't go wrong with running an oil bypass filter system on these trucks, especially if you plan on keeping it!

Hope this helps, have a safe trip!

If you're not doing Blackstone oil analysis you might want to consider it. The Fumoto valve is pretty cheap and makes it real easy and it SHOULD help you feel better about dropping $500 on it!
