CCV mod again

From what I have read and searched, most people are running heater hose to the rear to atmosphere or a catch can. I know plumbing it to the exhaust has been discussed, but is anybody doing it?

I would like to weld a fitting on the downpipe at a 60 deg angle. Any problems with this? I can't figure out if exhaust will come back up the hose or the exhaust flowing by the hole will actually help evac the crankcase.

You probably need the angle to keep exh from pushing back into c/case.I used 3/4 heater hose & just run it to back of cab and let it into atmosphere.I bought it all at napa
and plugged intake hose insted of buying kit off web sites.

I think if you do it too close to the turbo you are gonna end up melting something, if it were me...I would weld up a fitting farther under the truck.

Probably have to much pressure built up at the down pipe to create the effect your looking for (Bernoulli effect I think). Pressurizing your crankcase is a major problem. You may want to look at putting it in a bit closer to the tailpipe IMHO. I believe most race cars put them in after the headers.

Scrub it and send it back to the intake. NCHornet builds the units and has over 50+ units out there without any problems. I have a modified version of his and I have no problems. I rout it back to the intake and I would consider it a HP truck, but I am bias. Those of us in Cali also have to worry about smog soon. A modification to the emission system, and the CCV venting is an emission component, is grounds for not passing the truck. So, again I say I like the canister.

Those that weld a bung in the exhaust system mostly do it after the muffler so it is a strait shot out without getting any oil in the muffler. From what I have read.

Keep Strokin'

I seem to think there is... as I've heard of the dmax guys doing it too!

Do you have a hose coming from the crank case into the intake?

Marc worked on a 6.0 truck a couple of weeks ago that had it. I think his use name is "NCS". The vent sent out a hose to atmosphere at the transfer case.

Thanks Strokin early 99, but actually I have now sold more than 70 without one complaint.
You can vent to atmosphere but is smelly and you can coat the bottom of your rig in oil, not something I wanted on my truck. I mean they really stink, I can tell a truck that has this mod after standing near it at idle for just a minute or so. Some claim they never get a drop out of theirs, than there is a problem, because the whole idea is to get the oil out of the intake.
Welding a bung on the exhaust is a huge gamble, if it isn't welded at exactly the right angle in the exact correct location you will turn your PSD into a oil fountain. Probably 90% of the people who have tried this method have created leaks elsewhere on the engine. It sounds good but as I said it is a huge gamble!! I know Maintain was trying to do it that way.
By far the best method I have found is the collection canister method, even with it there are suttle changes that greatly affect whether it works or not. I have been researching and fine tuning this mod for the last three years and I have something that I know works, not just on a few trucks but every truck, including the 6.0's. If it didn't work I promise you it wouldn't be on my truck and sure as heck wouldn't be selling them to my friends here on the forum. PM me with any ?
If I can get a good look at a 6.4 I could tell you if it would work on one of them. My guess with Ferd is it probably will!!lol!!
