My CCV reroute with pics

I rerouted my CCV on my 2004.. All I did was flipped my CCV tube around and hooked up to 14 feet of 1 inch ID heater hose which I bought from lowes.. I plugged my intake hose with a 1 inch to 1 1/8 expansion plug.. Total was $45.. Routed the hose around steering column and down a long side driver side frame rail and dump it just past my fuel tank.. After zip tying it all up so it would stay where I wanted it too.. Been driving it for a week with no smells yet.. Left enough left over so I can hook up a catch can if I decided.. Took about an hour to do..

I like it. That is pretty much what I figured on doing once I get my truck back. (I'm on call this week and am driving a company vehicle)

I looped mine up over the degas bracket to make an oil trap, then ran it down to the frame rail under the cab.

Only had it on for a week.. No smell as of yet.. I am guessing it's going to be a while for oil to travel 14 feet of hose.. If it starts to get to messy then I will add a canister...

Not necessarily, it depends on the truck and how it gets driven, some truck blow oil out, others do not at all. It also depends how the hose is routed. IF you route it up a little ways, then back down that should stop any oil and drain it back into the crankcase.

I also agree, but I would almost say it is pretty well worth the 25 bucks to go to TSC and get the catch can that is for sprayers, throw some SS wool and call it a day. Then route the "out" side of the can to the rear of the tank/truck.

Wouldnt it be better to route the "out" side back to intake?
