WHAT? Dude, don't do anything like that!

I don't know why you want to re engineer the CCV Mod but you can cause yourself some Big Problems with engine seals if you screw it up

You either do it and dump the vapors to the atmosphere or into a catch-can and back into the intake without the oil. Make it yourself (but there's a right way to route that hose so it doesn't have a "low spot" to collect oil) OR buy the kit.

well.. I have been mud racing for 10 years and we put out valve cover breathers into the upright heads... works great....

I was thinking of putting the breether into the exhaust down by rear of the cab....

Y wouldn't it work good???

I've heard of people dumping it to the exhaust but I would be concerned that the exhaust would cause too much back pressure not allowing the engine to vent properly.

Exactly!

Are you Mud Racin' with a diesel? Because a diesel engine has about Double the compression ratio, it has about Double the blow-by. There is enough of this blow-by volume & pressure that it will push through every seal in the engine

Again, no need to re engineer what the "Diesel Guys" have been doing for years

the exhaust would draw the pressure out of the breether hose... angled in tothe exhaust...

Just wondering.... if this would work wouldn't it be easier to deal with..
never draining anything, or smoke coming from odd places...
