Question CCV Mod Q's

Out of curiousity; will the CCV mod eventually catch existing oil in the system after install? Or will the exsisting oil sit there until you clean it out manually? I found oil inside both IC pipes & on the cold side, there was a small puddle inside the boot. I've got the CCV mod coming in the mail, but I'd like to know how effective it'll be instead of worrying about old oil still circulating through the system.

Yup......it never see's the oil past the point in the intake system that you install it.

Easy to clean the tubes.

If you have time, pull the IC lay it down flat, I filled mine with the purple stuff cleaner from coastal, and HOT water. Let it sit for 20 minutes, and all the gunk floats to the tops of the inlet and outlet. Use a rag to skim it off, dump the water, use leaf blower to dry.

I got taken out by a Hyundai...it's not funny...now I look like Stump, but taller

Thanks, guys! I appreciate the responses. I can get the tubes out easy, but to get the IC out......I gotta pull the grill. I'll get the IC eventually. I'll have to get my hands on the Coastal Purple, too. Thanks again!
