CCV mod causing an issue?

Ok so I did what most other guys seem to be doing when I did my CCV mod, I flipped the dog house and ran my hose straight back along the inner frame rail to the back of the fuel tank..My question is, should I be seeing oil splatter on my rear end? over time oil builds up in the tube and I get a few drips out of it but I noticed after a long drive (3-400 miles my rear end gets pretty glossy along with my rear bumper) do I need to put it to a canister or to my exhaust? Could hose routing be and issue since it drops straight down the side of the engine?

You should try routing the hose over the brake booster. The upward travel helps to minimize the amount of oil that gets blown out the tube.

I just did this mod my self and ran it over the booster as said. I also have a canister mounted to the frame in front of the fuel tank. So far after 2 weeks and 500+ miles, you can definitely tell that oil is accumulating before the booster and running back to the valve cover. There maybe a drop or two in the canister. Most of what was in the canister is condensation.

Ok I will take everything into consideration, Route the hose over the booster or build a bracket that hold it up using the valve cover bolts then go to the exhaust. Is there a certain size fitting/ way the fitting should be? I heard putting the vent to exhaust wrong can create a vacuum or crank case pressure issue??

Go to jegs summit or whoever and search crankcase evacuation kit.... you will find oneway checkvalve and pipe fitting to weld in your exhaust for less than fiddy dollars

Checkvalve prevents pressurizing crankcase and it does create small vacuum which isuh good thing

I ran 20 feet of hose and put the tap into the exhaust about 4 feet before the end. I just ran the hose down the frame and over the cross member
