Thumbs up CCV mod and Zoodad mod

I did both of these mods yesterday, took her out for a little spin, checking things out today.
By the seat of my pants, it feels like the turbo spools up a little quicker, a bit better low and mid range pull. And, my scangauge shows it may even have increased mpg's a bit, too short of a ride to really know, but it is a familiar road I took, and mpg's were up, even with a pretty good head wind.
All in all, easy mods, maybe some other bene's.

Which CCV mod did you do? Did you buy one of the kits or just dump it?

For the time being, it is being dumped about halfway to the back of the truck. I will likely make, using some of the instructions here, a filter for it and mount that under the truck.

The CCV mod (crank case ventilation ) involves removing the vent hose from your air intake going into the turbo, and either filtering it before it returns to the turbo, or "dumping" it which allows any pressure to vent into the atmosphere. If you pull the intake tube from your turbo, you'll see all the oily buildup caked in the tube. That's from the CCV. That same junk is getting sucked into your turbo. No bueno.

The "Zoodad" mod involves drilling a hole through the fiberglass directly in front of the air intake. It allows air to enter the intake directly, rather than ambiently.
