Benefits of CCV Mod on a turbo IDI?
I'm a former 6.0 owner and I had the CCV mod done on my old truck. The CCV mod is popular with the 6.0's because the oily CCV mist gets oil in the intercooler and "intercooler pipe boots" causing them to pop off under load. I went ahead and did the CCV mod to my newly aquired turbo IDI 7.3 when checking the air filter. There was an oily film on the air intake tube and the turbo, and in my opinion the CCV mod allows cooler, cleaner air to get to the turbo. What I don't like is that the turbo IDI 7.3 puts out way more CCV fumes than the 6.0 did. If the truck is at a standstill it literally looks like something is burning or the engine is overheating because of the fumes! So I just want to know if there is any benefit to having the CCV mod done on a NON-INTERCOOLED engine such as the turbo 7.3 IDI?
Also, K&N air filters are frowned upon by the 6.0 guys what about turbo 7.3 IDI's?
