open hose coming off valvecover???

I was wondering if someone could tell me what the hose is coming off the box mounted on the valve cover underneath the intake tube. It mist out a little oil. Is that normal? Can i plug it or run it somewhere else so i wont hear it so much in the truck? It would be the right side valve cover if you were standing in front of the truck.

Thanks,
Zack

It is the crankcase breather, and do not block it off. It was normally routed into the intake. People do a ccv delete so the turbo doesnt get all gunked up with oil. Mine is hanging down in front, drips oil sometimes and has fog like Mist. I am going to reroute it to the back off the truck to take care of the fumes. Look at bobsorings.com he has a site for the delete and how he did it.

I figured it was supposed to hook up to stock intake. So there's no problem to just extend it and run it somewhere else then?

You are correct, just have to use the right hose material and don't let it get kinked. Probably use metal or plastic fittings at bends and 90s.

Well for one i would check to make sure the hole that it originally went into was properly plugged because otherwise you could be sucking in unfiltered air through that. As for the hose yes generally guys do two things with it, either a catch can or vent to the air(usually under the truck)

You have to make sure theres no places in the hose for the oil to collect because then it with create back pressure which is bad. Research CCV re-route before you do it to make sure you do it right
