CCV=smoke?

Well I've been lurking here for awhile taking in all the info I can on upgrades on my 02 X 7.3. I decided last weekend to install a couple of easy mods, HPX, WW, new upper and lower pedistal o-rings and the CCV. The CCV was an easy enough install, I routed the hose down the inside of the frame rail and terminated it next to the fuel tank. Here's the problem or question, I was following my wife home tonight and saw a noticable amount of smoke coming from the end of the CCV hose. I could not see any exhaust coming from the tail pipe. Is this normal? I am planning in the future to install the exhaust bung once I purchase my new exhaust. If this is normal, maybe I'll push up the purchase a few months and take care of this now. Any ideas?

I agree that without either a trap, or routing the ccv into the exhaust, you will see some smoke/oil.

Thanks for the welcome. I guess that I was a little surprized at the amount of smoke coming from the hose. What are people runnig for a trap? That maybe the answer until I install my new exhaust. I do have a question about that also, I have read that tying it into the exhaust creates a slight back pressure into the engine. Is this a problem?

Even with a trap, you will get the mist coming from the CCV. The low-restrictive trap I built was only to catch the condensed oil that would normally get into your CAC tubes and intercooler.

i used an 8" piece of 4" pvc, two caps, two 5/8" hose barb's with threads on one end, a drain **** like what's on a radiator and a furnace filter. i assembled it with one barb at the top and one at the bottom like a Z and the drain at the bottom with several layers of 4" circles of furnace filter. that was my first version and looks to work pretty well. my next is the same way but with a screw in plug at the bottom like in the link above to replace the filter's. also, if you run it into yor exhaust you'll most likely have a nice little oil slick down the side of your truck. $0.02

Guzzle, I was wondering how often you empty your trap? Is there anything you would change in the design? This maybe the route I end up going.

It's been about 18 months now and I haven't drained it once. Unless you have excessive blow-by, it's only a drip once in a while and I doubt if I have two tablespoons in it now.
