Racor CCV is different and they have made theirs for CATS/Detriots etc.

I have the powerstrokeconnection set up in my truck and I am disapointed with it. It seems that doesn't trap oil at all, I haven't had a drop of oil from it and when did the EGR delete saw oil and water residues in the IC cold side pipe. I will be changing it soon to the Racor CCV filter as Senix did. The only thing that really like from my current system is the canister location, but the Racor 4500 doesn't fit in that place.

About the wire mesh within it, I am also worried about the entry of some of that within the motor. But I noticed it so much time after its installation (without problems) that though, what the heck will leave it until the change. But now that you mentioned it I will be removing the system this next weekend. I really overestimated this design, there is more flow/velocity than I thought. This CCV application need engineering not only creativity, so Racor has now my bet.

Mine didn't collect a drop of oil for months until recently, then I found an oil/water sludge in the hose and that caught my attention. That's when I found the screen coming apart.

With the Racor it will take a bit to start to saturate the filter. When it does then the oil will drip down into the bottom of the cannister.

Does anyone know if the 4500 and the 6000 canisters are the same size? In the pics form the websites, it looks as if the Racor CCV6000 is larger than the 4500. Was just wondering if the 6000 would fit in a similar place as the 4500, or would it stick out below the frame? I am just wondering about the horsepower difference between the two as well. These trucks are rated at 365 hp and the 4500 goes up to 400. Later on, with a couple of mods, you could easily push 400 hp. Just thinking out loud as some of you have had more dealings with this than I have.

If you do some more searching you should be able to find the install instructions with the dimensions for the 6000.

I believe it to be larger as you are moving more air.

Not as wide as the frame rail. or maybe just at the same width.
