My CCV Mod....

I just did this today and it turned out ok. Not as professional as some look but I like the system.

I chose not to do a return line and see how it works out. When I get some extra time I will get a bracket to secure it better than with the zip ties. After looking at the pic it really kinda looks a little crappy.

For a filter, I used the air filters for your home heating floor vents. I think they are like 4x9 or close to it and they were cheap.

Also, I ran the line directly from the doghouse straight down the back side of the engine. I the line at a heavy equipment store called liberty equipment. It is oil resistent.


It works good though. I started the truck and it started steaming out the fumes...

Nice Job. It works for plumbing so why not on the truck. Keeps us posted on your "long" term thoughts.

update....

Zip Tie Delete!! I couldn't stand how that looked.

I bolted a mount bracket and got a hose clamp to secure it.

FWIW, with my filter set up I made and the outlet just behind the passenger door, it doesn't smell that bad at all. I still am able to smell the diesel fumes over the oil smell from the CCV mod.

That looks good. I probably would have painted it black and then it wouldn't stick out as bad. I ran a return line back to the intake on mine.

I did look underneath to see it in action and there is a steamy mist billoughing from the outlet. I did smell the "stink" while under the truck and it was stinky... but I have not noticed it since then. All I smell is diesel exhaust.

I will paint it black pretty soon when it warms up outside.

Dont let the possibility of a smell stop you from doing this.

After I did this mod, I took all the intercooler pipes and boots off including the Y intake comming off the turbo. I was appalled at the amount of grease/oil on the outside of the pipes and boots. And the insides were oily and had some pooling oil in spots. I went through 3 full size bath towels, and I mean really greasy dirty as in I aint even gonna try and wash them, cleaning them all up. Hands down a dirty job!!

Boy oy oy ....... did ford f up this design.....


the new vent canister is already getting black and greasy looking on the inside too.

Very satisfied that I did all this and happy about it too.
