CCV Mod Benefits?

Are there any benefits to this mod besides the fact that its the way International intended it to be made?

To add to your questions, besides the oil on the IC boots being annoying, could the stock configeration be emissions related? I know the newer engines can't vent directly to atmosphere.

The main reason being to clean up the engine compartment, keep the IC boots clean, keep them from possibly blowing off, and to keep oil out of the intake.

There are oil leaks from the top of the engine that drain down the back of the block and have people, incorrectly, diagnose a bad rear seal BUT, not from the CCV...

The CCV is supposed to be a closed system and you won't see external leaks from it other than around the IC boots
