Smile 1st MOD! and 2 questions...

We got our tax return back from Uncle Sam so I celebrated my doing the DIY mod today!
Got a 3" piece of 4" exhaust pipe, the guy at the muffler shop cut it for me and just gave it to me at no charge after I told him what I was going to do. Got the filter at NAPA for about $45.00.
It took about 45 minutes. I de-burred the pipe then scrubbed it with steel wool and washed it real good to get rid of any metal pieces, then I took off the air tube and cleaned out in front of the turbo, there was some old oil cruded up in there, not much but I figured I may as well clean it out.
Took the Beast for a quick drive, more turbo sound, can hear it winding up a bit more and can also hear something change when the RPMs change with shifting, must be the blades spinning?
Sounds good, drove great, can't wait to try it on a longer drive tomorrow.
Pretty easy mod, really.

Questions - whats the tube that comes up in front of the turbo inside the airway and the should I put sometihng under the filter to keep it from getting crud thrown up on it? Seems that it's pretty open to the road in there now.

Thanks Maintain's GREAT!! photos and write up on this!

No problem!

That tube that sticks up in the intake is the CCV. A lot of people plug that hole or replace that hard plastic piece with an exhaust pipe and then route the CCV elsewhere... usually to a catch can or to the atmophere. Make sure you get heater hose and if you route it to the atmosphere you route it as far back as possible to avoid the fumes, cus they stink!

Is there an advantage to re-routing the CCV?

I'm in western Montana, Missoula area.

Thanks!

You'll like the DIY Intake. I did mine a couple of weeks ago. I have an auto tranny but the sound, I've been told, between your shifts and when you get off of the pedal, I bet, is the excess air that is on its way to the turbo and now must exit somewhere. So best I can tell, it comes back out of the filter. No one has ever mentioned it, but I guess the sucker is self cleaning.

either that or hes hearing the excess boost going out the wastegate. CCV mod is easy to do. It will keep all that oil and gunk from getting through your intake tract, and more importanly, in to your engine!

CCV mod just reroutes the CCV from your intake tube to elsewhere.

Keeps the oil out of the intercooler...

A filter or catch can that you can change/empty periodically.
