Guzzle's CCV mod

I just did the CCV mod this weekend and was wondering if anybody as had issues with excive mist/fog/vapor etc from the filter? its not a large amount but you can see it alot when sitting at a stop light with carlights shinning under the truck. 02 F-250 237,000 mi i used the idea from guzzle's its just a little embarrassing

Every engine will do this. I will be running the hose into the downpipe but through a one way check valve.

theres mist because there is no place for it to go, your turbo originally sent it through your intake then out the exhaust, why not just eliminate "the middle man"... i.e. find a way like a venturi and connect it to your exhaust and use that to take place of the turbo and it won't go through your intercooler and engine components. I have no means at my disposal otherwise i'd look into this on my truck. unemployed sucks

Where do you get this check valve, and does it actually work? I wouldnt do it unless its proven to work otherwise you'll have a weeping engine if you pressurize the crankcase.

These might work:

Moroso : Category Display

or

Moroso 97800 - Moroso Replacement Check Valves - Overview - SummitRacing.com

and

Moroso 97810 - Moroso Replacement Weld-In Nipple Fittings - Overview - SummitRacing.com

They are made for drag racing but I don't see why one wouldn't work in the downpipe.

PS, the Moroso link has the instructions on how to weld the nipple in the exhaust pipe.

You beat me to it.
This is proven in drag racing but they are installing in the collector where tjere will be slightly more vacuum than in our downpipe, but if you are running anything larger than factory exhaust (im sure factory exhaust is ok to) you shouldn't have 1 lb of backpressure. If you do, you should take care of thatbefore worring about rerouting the ccv.
you have to weld in correctly "Y" shape with enterance in direction of flow. This will enduce a vacuum that gets greater as the exhaust velocity increases.

I think you're all making this way too complicated....

Either vent it to the atmosphere and live with the "stink" (that's what U I did).

Or have a catch-can to collect the oil and put the fumes back into the intake (without the oil).

Other than that, I don't see the need to screw-around and take the chance on causing an over pressure in the crankcase. No FILTER! for sure, it's gonna clog eventually.... No CHECKVALVE!, don't have a mechanical mechanism that could fail and cause a problem.

And, while using the venturi action of moving exhaust to "draw" blowby out sounds great, I have to ask "Why?"

So, IMHO, do it simple or not at all. DIY it as a plain vent-out or get NCHornets "kit" and keep it legal...

I built the turbo system currently on my mustang....i think a nipple welded on the exhaust with a simple check valve (that came stock on the mustang) is pretty simple, very cost effective, and I don't have to smell that chit or deal with it dripping on my driveway.

This is do simple its pathetic.
