CCV Mod DIY

Well finally got this one done and checked off the list here are some pics. Not too bad, about an hour worth of work. I used all the factory fittings and the peice of hose to the intake just cleaned'em up and bought new clamps. Just changed the orientation abit plugged the hole in the intake with a 3/4 in cap and epoxy bought 14ft of hose and fed it in zip tied it down and finished. The future still has a catch can in it but waiting for it to get hear. It will be an easy install later. My tube made it all the way to the front of the rear wheel well. Nothing in the cab for odor so far.

Hope this cleans up the top of the engine my IC boots are soaked. So know I can remove those next and get them cleaned.

So, the stock CCV "vent filter" on the drivers VC is the main reason we see coated IC boots and oil in the tubes as well? Assumed as much, but was not sure... Nice install.

do you guys think there are any consequences to venting the crankcase to outside air rather than having ported vacuum scavenge the gasses out? if anything why not put a catch in between the valve cover and intake bellows so you'd have the best of both worlds (scavenging but no oil contamination)

is it possible the oil could become contaminated faster? are diesels the same as a gas engine where crankcase gasses are very acidic and corrosive? I know you definitely don't want to delete your PCV on a car for this main reason

I have heard this as well. If you decide to do it, you can unscrew the CCV piece and flip it around so the vent is on the backside. This makes it easier to run the hose and a short piece of 4" exhaust pipe in place of the OEM tube takes care of plugging up the factory piece. Plus this allows you to return it to stock easily if u want in the future.

I tried to take the doghouse off, flip it around and reinstall it on my truck. It wouldn't work that way. The FICM bracket is in the way if you flip it over.

Yep, tried the same thing today, you would have to cut a notch out of the bracket for one and second split the case as the roound holes do not line up when upside down.

I found a sweet catch can/siphon from Princess Auto, it has 1" threaded outlets and a mesh inside with a slight baffel between the two ports and the bottom half unscrews and has a gasket in it. I added 1 inch nipples and routed hoses so it feeds back to the intake port, looks and works awesome total in parts $65.
Shoulda took pictures....
