Those wil ccv mod with catch can

How much oil do you guys accumulate and how long does it take. I just changed my oil before a 500 mile round trip and emptied out can. I just dumped the can and had about close to a 1/4 cup of fresh oil in the catch can. Just seemed way to quick to get that much, I may have been a little less than that but close to 1/4.

1/4 cup in 500 miles? So just dumping the hose to the ground would be a bad idea?

U know, putting a can is a good idea I guess, but I have never noticed an oil drip from the end of my hose. How do u have it run? I think if u run it straight to the side and down u will get a lot more oil going out thru the hose than if u run it up and loop to the side.

Make sure you have a high point in the hose (higher than outlet of CCV from valve cover)

Without a high point, to allow heavy oil vapors to collect and drain back into the engine, you will have A LOT of oily discharge

Yea, you want to run that hose up & over the booster before you go down with it (although I thought that was mostly to prevent creating a "trap" for the oil that might cause resistance)

Does seem like a lot of oil.... My truck has 10% of your mileage, so maybe that's the difference, but I've never seen even a drop of oil from the tube.

TABLESPOON

G'day Mate,
I made my own CCV and catch can, and at each oil change 7,500Km (5,000Ml) I get slightly less than a 'Table Spoon' amount.
However as mentioned; you must run the 3/4" hose upward from the Dog House before leading it down to your catch can to allow the heavy oil vapours to drain back into the donk. You should only end up with the light mist vapours that carry over the loop condensing in the catch can; hence the small tablespoon amount.

Cheers,
Reg.
