There is a ton of information as to what the CCV mod does in the 7.3, 6.4 and 6.0 threads. From what I have learned...long story short keeps the crap out out the motor...seems the EGR is super popular but not the CCV mod when it comes to the 6.7. Seems to me they would go hand in hand as doing them both completely eliminates crap being recirculated back into the motor. The amount of crap that I have seen in the intake manifold doing the installs on all these parts is terrible.
Yes there is oily residue in the plastic tube that goes from the CCV box back to the lower intake manifold as well as the manifold inlet where the hose hooks too. I have 35,000 on my truck. Also from what I have gathered in all my research of the threads mentioned above is the higher horsepower/boost vs factory makes for all this mess gathering in the motor quicker and in more volume.
Makes sense to me, I think I'll be ordering that kit along with some extra fuel filtering solution once I figure out which to go with...
Thanks Nelson, appreciate all your posts as I'm slowly learning about and trying to be proactive in taking care of my truck for the long haul...
