CCV and 6637

Ok fellas i just ordered the CCV reroute kit and the 6637 kit from RiffRaff Diesel Performance. I have to say that the 6637 kit is awesome and I love it.
Here is a pic of the 6637 installed:


After install it there is definetly a seat of the pants difference in feel. It is very loud under the hood and you can actually hear it sucking air. I really like it.


The CCV reroute was pretty strait forward and very easy and after doing it and have a question.

The hose just hangs down on the ouside of the frame rail kinda between the front and rear door. I just went and got some grub and went through the drive through and it was smoking out of the hose. Is this normal? If i build a catch can will it help get rid of the smoke? The smoke has no ordor but i dont want people thinking that my truck is about to catch fire.

Thanks guys
Jarret

The smoke is definitely normal. My brother did the CCV on his 01 and it puffed like crazy even when he had a huge breather on the hose.
But get ahold of a catch can and you'll be good to go.

Yea, the can is it. He made two small holes on the top of the can and put breather material behind them. He just wanted to make sure that he didnt cause a build-up of pressure.
But the vapors dont really even come out with hardly any pressure.
Since he did the can I havent seen any smoke out of it.

The smoke is normal as pointed out. But if you want an easier solution than building a catch can, just route the hose up toward your fan. It will dissipate the smoke.

Mine smokes. Only really notice it if I am at a drive through at night and someone is behind me. I worried about it for a while till I found out it was normal for the 7.3.

Any pics of the CCV hooked up? I looked at it on their site and theirs looks different than the one Raul carries. Also cheaper!

No i didnt take any pics bc it was so easy to do. if you want some i can go snap some but all it comes with is 4 o-rings, 2 for the bolts and 2 for the bottom of the doghouse, a piece of 4inch pipe to put in the intake where the stock CCV goes into the intake at, an adaper to hook the *90 on the doghouse up to the hose that they send you, and some instructions. I ordered mine with the 6637 all together and i could not be more happier. Great product for the money.
