new CCV mod idea, would it work?

Right now I have my CCV vented out on the lower rear of the passenger front fender. My new idea that I'm kicking around is to vent it into the exhaust. I have a 4" dp to straight 5" I would put a nipple into the exhaust at an angle right where it goes from 4"-5" and run the CCV to it. The questions I have though would there be to much back pressure for it to vent properly or will it help with a vacuum affecte ? Has anyone done this before ?

Many have done it. Some love it some don't. There is a kit out there somewhere for it. I will most likely do it when I get exhaust as I hate it open to the air.

I have mine VTA as well but I have never seen a "kit" to go into the exhaust. Do you have a link or a idea on who makes it? I would be very interested in checking it out. Thanks in advance...

EDIT:

I did some google searching and this is the only kit I could find:

If it works well for our trucks it might be a good option.....

Does no one make a CCV kit for our trucks that vents into the exhaust?

Those other tips look that I linked look tiny for our trucks. I would think we would need to weld in like a 3/4" to 1" tip into the exhaust to make it work. If anyone has done it and it worked well please post as I would be interested in doing it as well but don't know where to start.

Thanks for the information. I saw that post already so maybe I will re-phrase the question for you then.

Can someone point me in the direction of a kit made for our trucks that vents the CCV mod into the exhaust? Maybe in the form of a link or manufacturer.

Or even a link of a DIY that has been performed by someone.

Darkhorse diesel is the manufacturer. Also MPD and Elite have a CCV kit that can be routed into the exhaust.
