Crank case ventilation

I built my own CAI and while doing so, removed the stock crank case vent tube that attaches to the CAI tubbing. I did so after observing all the damn oil it dumps into the air intake tube, then being sucked into the turbo. I kept the stock vent tube and just attached a filter to it. Has anyone else done this? If so, have you noticed any negative effects from it or what did you do to clear this up? By the way, I am sure this has been covered a few hundred times and there is termonology for what I am speaking of, I just haven't learned the language yet. Thanks in advance

if you are willing to spend a little extra cash on this you could buy a catch can.itll fix all your problems and you could even hook it back up to the cai.but if not i would just keep an eye on how much oil pushes through the filter and change it every once in a while.you should be fine.

Be careful with that filter. These engines are sensitive to positive pressure in the crankcase. If you notice a leak, unhook it. NCHornet sells his kit through Raul at Stealth if you don't want to make you own.

I just found this product but the add was on *************. Not sure if it's compatible with the Ford 7.3's so I placed a question into their contact section asking of such. Let ya know when they reply!
