Check out my CCV6000 filter after 7 months!

7 months I've had my Racor CCV6000 onboard and I have dumped about 8 ounces of water out but the oil is clearly consuming 1/4th of the filter media. I may get another year or less and time for a new replacement filter. This stuff could have been in my Intake, CAC tubes and Turbo...yikes.

So, you got some water out of it also? That just keeps moving up my "mod" list. Thanks for sharing!

ccv is Crank Case Vent...what you see on his filter is what gets dumped back into your engine unless you do the mod. there are a few ways to accomplish this as well; the pictured option, a smaller setup like NCHornets, or just dump it overboard if youre a cheap @$$ like me

This mod just moved up on my list today too since I blew a boot pulling away from a traffic light, Nice big cloud of black smoke though. There was a mess of nasty looking oil in and on the tube and in the boot. I really need to get NCHornet's CCV and then drain my IC, there's probably a quart of oil in there.

Yeah...it basically re-directs the oily (dirty air) from your Driver side valve cover doghouse thru a full-flow filtration then back into your intake up-tube vent to turbo. Your 6.0L creates approx 8 cfm's so I decided not to mess with changing the way the system breathes...just filtering what it breathes. As with the EGR cooler concept...this engine was designed to eat its own ****...so we have to correct that. The system isn't cheap...its ran on many large over the road truck setups and on many marine diesel applications...it just that Ford/Navistar didn't feel it was neccesary on our 6.0L's ...same as the coolant bypass filters...these both should have came as a stock setup. I picked up my filter on ebay for $110 and bought the hoses from a local Parker hose shop...the fittings are all from The Home Depot. The replacement fillter cost around $45...and should last 1.5-2 years.

Moyock,
Thanks for the information on the CCV mod. I want to do this mod as soon as possible. However, I do have 127k mile on my truck. I assume the mod is still worth it?

Can you provide a quick parts list for your installation?

Also, with the filter being mounted on the frame rail is it possible to get water sucked into the intake if the filter was to be submerged in water?? No, i do not have any plans on ever going thru water that deep in my truck. However, you never know what you might get caught in.

Thanks
