CCV mod

I just recently did the ccv mod on my truck and its awesome. My turbo was sucking a good amount of oil into my intake so i'm glad i did this. The engine runs a whole lot smoother now too. Its funny watching my truck smoke at both ends now.

I terminated mine just past the 1st fuel door, but down along the frame rail.

The 1st night I drove it I was parked under a light pole and I saw smoke rising up between the bed, and cab. I was loading my kids up while the truck was idling.

I had an oh s--t moment thinking something caught fire.

Then a DOH! moment.


I sleep better at night knowing my turbo isn't getting lubed the wrong way.

CCV was a quick cheap and easy worthwhile mod

Didn't know what the ccv mod was until i read this thread. I plugged Ford ccv mod into google and the next thing you know I am down at napa buying coolant hose, clamps and a straight barb. haha

Have a list of stuff to get at lowes to build an oil catch next.

Yes. I'd run it to the back of the truck though.

I took it one step further and pulled the ccv feed tube out of the "air horn" just before the turbo. I then filled the resulting hole and smoothed it out. All in the name of increased air flow.

I also unbolted the CCV dog house and rotated it so the tube exits at the rear. That made for a cleaner hose route path.

I used the same procedure, turning the "dog house" around. Made for a much cleaner install. I was able to utilize the stock 90* hose that connected the CCV to the Turbo inlet tube as it was still in great shape. I also routed mine up around the booster like "Guzzle's CCV mod" write up on another site. Just need to build a new 4" connector to eliminate the stock one that now has the whole plugged.
