Question CCV Mod for 6.0L

So I've been reading about installing a CCV Mod with filter/strainer on my 2004 F250 S'Duty. No problem with mount location, spec'ing out the parts, or making a custom mount. What I need to know is where is the hose or hose connection located that I need to reroute through the strainer then back into the intercooler intake system. Any photos or tech drawings would be extra helpful. Thanks to all ya'll for your input.

Thanks a lot, 03-blue-Powerstroke. Looks like once I remove the S&B Intake the CCV connections will be pretty accessible. Planning to mount the filter/strainer in the right rear corner of the compartment, just to the right and slightly behind the coolant degas tank. Looks like there should be room and the hose runs will be nice and short.
Can you tell me... is the hose I.D. at the CCV connection on the valve cover 3/4"? And is it the same at the connection to the intercooler intake? I've read several threads that suggest installing a 1" strainer unit to reduce the air flow pressure drop so I guess I'd just step up the hose I.D.s to mate up.
Thanks again for your quick response.

I'm sorry and please pardon my ignorance (I'm fairly new to this forum stuff)... but what does it mean that you have a "bump" for me?

BigRing66, which strainer are you using? Is it DIY or is there a part aI can look for?

Thanks.

The fitting on the valve cover is 1 inch, at least it is on the 03 I just did mine yesterday. I just split the metal crimp on each side and pull the origional hose off and slid a piece of 1 inch hose onto it. hope this helps.
