Different type of CCV mod? Will it work?

I saw this on another forum... Will it work?? It is readily available at Tractor Supply for $20. Sure beats a couple hundred...

Here is a link for it.

Kevin...just be careful on the pressure...the Crankcase vent creates approx 8cfm's...I would check that item out to see if it will withstand the amount of pressure required.

So, you think it will break a apart or something??? It is basically a spindown filter. I have one on my well and it constantly handles 55psi. i know that is a liquid application. This CCV is more or less a paint sprayer filter. There is one on ebay that handles 250psi.

On this mod it would be basically oily air flowing in, once it hits the mesh strainer, the oil mist would turn to droplets and fall to the bottom. It is by no means purifying the air that returns, but it is removing some oil... I would use the 1" inlet/outlet one and run it in the engine compartment instead of the frame.

I think it should be alright... I'll keep watching for other replies...before I drop the 20 bones...

Personally, I think it will work. I would definately keep an eye on it though for clogging concerns....(if the 8 cfm CCV pressure is backed up and no where to go...the pressure could wreak havoc on the engine seals/gaskets).

EZ-Ford did this in September...still haven't heard results of its use yet. It would definately be a great value.

Shoot Tom, you know how I am.... I just installed the HIDs I have had for months and still haven't flushed my coolant and installed that filter... Had the stuff for months too... I guess I am just so consumed with life...
You up for some garage building??? A lil construction work?? Gonna break ground in less than a month (hopefully). Getting permits and such now..


Back to the subject...

Anybody have any opinions on this as a CCV mod???

No problem...never let a fellow Navy brother down. I'll be there...just say when. Will have to check out the HIDs...heard about them...heard they require less amp draw? let me know if you need any help with the bypass filter.
