I am not trying to sell you one of my CCV mods, members around here will tell you I am not here for that. But I am going to be 100% honest with you, it's up to you if you listen. Be darn careful when messing with the CCV system on the PSD. The 7.3 in particular is very, very sensitive to backpressure, and using the wrong filter media in the canister will cause enough backpressure to turn your PSD into a oil fountain!!! Many have tried to save a few bucks and have discovered this for themselves. Some say to just run a hose out the back, but this is messy, stinks and is just not the right way to do it. I have over 400 of my units on the road and not one single problem, it simply works. I will help you but I can only go so far, I am sure you understand. Here is a link to my mod if you decide the risk just isn't worth blowing a seal, Good Luck bud, and feel free to PM me. If your canister is off a ricer , forget it, it will never work for the 7.3, even the hose needs to be a proper size!! I am serious about being very sensitive!!

Wink CCV home mod

So NCH you leave the intake restriction in with your CCV MOD kit? Just take out the minor oil mist then and reconnect to the intake.

Why not reduce the intake restriction?

Ran my 5/8 hose to the rear bumper. Have minimal mess back their. Have been passing emission test every other year with it.

do you have any white smoke coming out the end of the hose at idle?

Little to no smoke or oil exiting the end.

sorry, forgot to ask how many miles you have on your truck. I tried to run a hose off mine but I guess I have too much blow by. I hated seeing the white smoke at idle in traffic.
