CCV mod idea-

ive been reading up on this and have a few questions. could i simply run a air compressor filter/media unit inline? my other thought was to have my friend re-do the threads to an extra aos i have. it looks like this
and simply allow the oil saturated to return to the engine.

There's really not that much oil to deal with....

If you run the tubing up from the valve cover for a bit (you're supposed to go over the top, and behind, of the brake booster) whatever oil is being carried by the vapors kind of drains-back down the slope.

My truck has very little miles but it's been over a year and hasn't dripped a drop of oil from the end of the tube.

the only thing i want going into my turbo is clean air from the filter. the only downside is the smell sitting at idle, doesn't bother me but I just had a friend comment about it yesterday. something along the lines of, "what the hell is that oil smell?!" i just laughed and told him my truck is how I like my women: loud, fast, and alittle stinky.
