CCV mod?

I have the CCV mod done but i have seen that everyone turns there doghouse around and runs the hose. I turned my elbow coming off the dog house down and ran another hose straight off it and down my frame. Is there any reason not to do it this way? I just didnt understand the extra steps of taking it off and replacing o rings unless there is another reason.

I don't see any reason why it wouldn't work the way you have it, I had mine venting along the frame by the transfer case for a good 10 months with no issues.

So there really isnt a reason to take the part off the top and turn it around to face the firewall? Everything clears and it makes it easier to put back to stock for inspections.

You need to have a high spot before it goes down to your frame or else you will loose ALLOT of oil.

Run it up over the brake reservoir then down the frame...that will keep the oil from running down the hose

I had mine running straight down off the doghouse and never notived anything but a drop every now and then. I just figured it was residue from the smoke
