Small CCV Mod Question

I am outside fix'in to do the CCV Mod. I am going to run the 1" tube to the rear and make a filter out on a 4.6L air intake. My question is can I just block off the intake tube hole where the doghouse was vented to the intake tube ( the little L shaped 1" tub). I have it apart and am trying to figure out how to block it off but wanted to make sure it does not have to be vented for some odd reason

You'll need to plug the hole in the intake side (black plastic block with the rubber tubes, one going to the turbo, one to the filter box) or it will suck unfiltered air into the engine.

The other side of the CCV that connects to the valve cover (that "doghouse" on top) is what you're venting to the atmosphere and Should NOT be blocked in any WAY!!! Pressures will build in the engine and push oil out every seal....

I see no reason for a filter at the end of that tube.

FWIW - The right way to do a CCV mod is to actually reconnect the crankcase fumes, you're now venting at the back of the truck, back into the intake but with an oil "catch can" in between. Not necessary, just will avoid Emissions Issues maybe and stop the vaporous "stink" that you'll see coming from the tube in back

Take the black connector block out and tape the hole closed, set it on a table with towels or something so it sets with the hole straight down, fill the hole with JB weld or epoxy using the tape as the bottom seal to hold it in. DONE
