Thanks for the sight! Is it really worth the $100 to buy the CCV Mod from Stealthautomotive? Has anyone else ran this kit from Stealthautomotive and liked it. I live in a cold climate and wanted to make sure this system won't sludge up and block air flow.

Thanks,

Matt

I've never ran it, but you can piece yours together for under 30

I will probably just buy the CCV Mod because I don't have the time to mess around with fabricating my own, plus I don't really feel like messing around with the crankcase pressure. My luck, I would create too much crankcase pressure and start blowing out seals! How much oil does the average truck actually pruduce in the air intake tube? Just want to make sure I am not covering something up here by routing the oil to a filter.

Also, I bought some new intercooler pipe and intake manifold boots to help create a better seal. I still have the original boots on there and they are pretty weak from the oil penetrating them for some long now. So, that should help. I never had a boot blow off, but since I am going to do the CCV Mod I thouhgt I might as well change the boots. I forgot to ask earlier if there is an o-ring on the high pressure oil line where it connects to the oil rail? I know there is an o-ring kit for the HPOP but i believe the o-rings are for the fittings at the oil pump. Are there o-rings where the HPOLine connects to the oil rail?

Thanks again,

Matt

I bet your IC is sludged up and not performing at peak also.
200K miles? How much oil is it consuming between changes?
Get the CCV mod from raul, clean out IC and install new boots.
You may also want to examine your oil cooler for leaks they are notorious for leaking on mid mileage rigs as well.

Yeah, I have not cleaned out the IC yet, that would be on my list for things to do. I have gotten worse fuel mileage over the years, but there are over 200K on the truck, so I have to take that into consideration. She isn't brand new anymore! I did order the CCV kit from Raul yesterday, so hopefully that will be in next week. Also, my oil cooler is not leaking. The weird thing is that I don't really consume any extra oil......well, atleast not a noticable amount. I have been checking my oil since this oil leak started to show itself and the oil really has not gone down any(Less than half a quart if any), so that is why I originally thought it was a fuel leak and the thinned oil on the ground was just the fuel washing the oil off of the motor. I am going to change the rubber washers on my fuel line fittings to the head from the fuel/water seperator, because those are leaking a little. Those are my plans for now. Anymore feadback is appreciated.

Thanks,

Matt

2 GALLONS IS QUITE A BIT OF OIL BETWEEN OIL CHANGES! You are definately leaking some oil. Do you have a **** load of oil siting in the engine valley?

But, the CCV Mod and the New Boots should solve my oil issue. The only other thing I need to check are the fittings at the HPOP, because I have never changed those. Are there o-rings on the HPOline going into the oil-rail? I know it is a quick disconnect, but not for sure if there are any o-rings? I blew the HPOL about 5 years ago and had to replace it on the road but cannot remember if there were any o-rings when I installed the new line.
