No it is not necessary. The main reason it is done is the oil eats at the boots and and could blow apart due to the boots being lubed by the oil. The coating of oil inside the intercooler makes it a tad bit less efficient.

I won't go as far to say the IC is less efficient without the CCV mod, but I agree 100% with the rest of the above statement. Some could care less while others care about oil dripping on the driveway. I have seen the CCV leak so much oil through the intake boots that it fills the valley and drips down the back of the block and off the bell housing. Many of the ones I have seen the owner had a mechanic tell them a rear main seal was bad!! If you look in my sig I have pics of my engine, look at my intake boots, they haven't been removed or cleaned since 2003. Many on here have seen my engine in person and they will tell you it is clean. There is no performance gains, even though some that have used my CCV mod claim so, I don't, it is simply a good maintenance mod, and yes the less oil on the boots the less chance of them blowing off at higher boost levels!!

Maybe that’s my oil leak? So you would buy the stealth kit?
By "valley" do you mean right below the turbo? I could pull off one of the boots to see how bad it is.

You don't really need a catch can for the CCV mod (some say it adds restriction and can cause problems) but without one you'll notice a nice plume of nasty smelling white smoke coming from the end of your hose. Mine is vented to the atmosphere right now, but I want to build a catch can for it to help get rid of the smelly smoke. There are TONS of different ways to build a catch can if you feel so inclined to do it yourself.

Let me clarify my previous statement regarding intercooler efficiency. The intercooler is made of aluminum which is one of the best materials for transferring heat. The job of the intercooler is to cool the intake charge. So if you put a coating of oil and fine particulates on it. You lower its ability to do its job by insulating it with gunk.

Yes, the kit Raul sells is Manufactured by me. My CCV mod will never cause restriction, over 300 of them sold and not a single problem. Just ask anyone who uses them. Raul will answer all your questions, or you can always PM me. Running the hose out the back is not what I consider the coirrect way of doing the CCV mod, it is messy and smells, but alot of folks do it. It is also against emission laws to alter that factory flow of air. Not a problem now, but it's coming. The 7.3 is very sensitive to backpressure so be very careful with your experimenting, I have seen more than one member turn his stroker into a oil fountain by doing this.

It's called BACKPRESSURE, and the 7.3 is very sensitive to it. Be vey careful about experimenting, most have learned it's just not worth it.
