CCV mod for 6.0...Help?!

I found plenty of info for the CCV mod for the 7.3 and was wondering if anyone had similar information for doing it to a 6.0 handy...

Why you ask? Good question!

I previously installed my Accufab intake elbow with no problems, running up around 33 PSI boost with I.D.'s Xtreme Street tune.

Seems taking the elbow on and off with the Snow Stage III Water/Meth install has got the CAC hose having second thoughts about staying in place. Anyone that's had one pop off can tell you how quickly it will get your attention. None of the typical remedies (hairspray, etc.) seem to keep it in place and I figure one of the best ways to eliminate the problem and avoid it in the future is to re-route the CCV. Every time I check the boot has oil mist on the inside of it and I was hoping there would be a similar fix for the 6.0 as there is for the 7.3.

In addition to upgrading the CAC hose and clamps, I might dump the Accufab and use the stocker for the injector noozles and boost tap. The wall of the intake elbow is a little to thin in my opinion, and if TIG-ing some bungs for the nozzles ends up being more work than it's worth, I might just as well tap the stocker which has a pretty decent wall thickness.

Thanks for the help all!

Matty

I have been reading on some other boards and people are mentioning that it might be important to have some vaccum to your crank case? If this is true wouldnt the CCV not be that good of a mod?

it just re routes it to not get oil in ur intercooler and cac tubes coated with oil and help the cac boots not to pop off..many people have done it w/o and negative effects so id say with confidence its a good free mod..

Done!

Followed the instructions on the link and no worries. Haven't caught a whiff of it or spotted anything on the driveway yet and could care less anyway, as long as it stops sliming up the I/C with oil mist I'm happy. Thanks again Dustin,

Matty

I was in a convo over on that site with a member about this and was planning on doing it. Talked to marc on aim and told him I was thinking about it and he said it wasn't a big deal unless I was blowing my cac tube off. Glad it worked out for ya!
