CCV Mod Flip Flop the D-House

So is there a procedure for flipping the Dog House to route the CCV hose down instead of up?

Looks like a lot of stuff will need to come out, Degauss Tank, FICM etc.

On a 7.3 it's easy. But duh, there's hardly anything in there.
Basically, just move whatever you have to to be able to get a hand in there. Just two screws, flip it the other direction, and screw it down. I'd get new orings for it though, I bet they're swelled up.

Well on the 2005 it appears to run the length of the manifold and not way to rotate it 180 deg.

Couldn't figure this out until the FICM and everything else was out of the way!

Anyone else do this or just route it up and over?

Under the hood now so any quick replies would be appreciated.

There's lots of threads about this. But just do whatever works. I think a lot run it so that it climbs first, heads over the brake booster, then down the rest of the way to it's terminus.
You don't want any low spots in the system. They will collect oil and create a trap, not allowing the CCV to vent properly. The initial climb after the doghouse to the brake booster helps keep any oil condensate in the valve cover.

It's not really practicle to try and flip the housing. In post #158 of my attached thread I have a pic of the 90deg elbow I used on mine. Worked really slick.

Started the big bulletproofing endeavor

On my 05 I just routed it out to master cylinder at an upwards angle, then down to frame and mounted filter/catch pan to the frame just under driver door. It exits out down frame to my rear air bags, which is where I ran out of hose. I zipped tied everything. The filter housing I got from Tractor Supply I used a 3" exhaust clamp and bolted it to the frame. Right now there is a table spoon of oil in filter housing. I installed it about a month ago and run 80 mph for 240 miles everyday. Its nice to know that my turbo isn't sucking in that oil and pushing it through the intercooler.

Just turn the 90* in the doghouse around and run the hose over the puke jug and down along the frame. Takes all of 20 minutes. DOn't forget to plug the intake tube after you are done.
