CCV Re-route Complete-Deleting Next Weekend

I finished my CCV reroute this afternoon. I could not find the chair feet like some others used but I did find a plug at Advance Auto Parts. I bought the 3/4 - 7/8" plug but the 5/8 - 3/4" plug would have been better. I had to bore out the intake elbow with a file and some sandpaper.

Materials:

10' 1" ID heater hose - $22
Hose Clamps - $2
Zip Ties - $2
Plug for elbow- $5

This shows the intake elbow plugged. The plug was similar to a boat drain plug. I may paint the bolt in the next few days so it isn't as obvious.




I decided to run the hose along the outside of the frame rail. As you can see, it dumps right by the soon-to-be-gone DPF.



Now I am waiting on the UPS guy to deliver my H&S XRT PRO on Friday. Thanks to a fellow member and the classifieds section, I saved a bunch of money on my Flo Pro DPF/DOC delete.

Thanks. Powerstroke.org is starting to cost me more and more money. Every time I see something new that may help with MPG and longevity, it goes on my to-do list.

From my understanding this is just to vent the crankcase gases to atmosphere instead of back into the intake and turbo. EGR delete should have no effect on the CCV.

The problem that the CCV creates is by venting the crank case it allows a small amount(be enough) of engine oil in to the intake, which then runs through your intercooler, intercooler pipes, and then in to your turbo coating everything with a thin coat of oil. And the process never stops. Well, until you do a CCV mod. Hope that answers your question.

And yes, the egr delete has nothing to do with it.

Due to some logistics miracle, my parts came in early!!! It took about three hours but my DPF "fell" off my truck today and I installed the EGR blocker plates. Plates took about an hour and DPF took about two hours. First test run put a big smile on my face.

I do not think that the type of lube job that the CCV provides is the right one. LOL. I read somewhere about it throwing off the balance of the turbo and causing premature wear but there may be other reasons behind it. I do not think there are any gains as far as mpg, hp, or anything other than preventing problems with the turbo and keeping junk out of the intake.
