Rerouted my crankcase vent...

OK yall,
I started at 7:30 and finished at 9:30, The custom silicon blue hose I ordered was suppose to be 1 and 1/8 id it was 1 and 1/4 so that took a little extra time, but rather smooth.... My turbo with 20k miles had no dust but it did have a black sooty oilly residue on it which you would exspect with the system...Seeing that made it worth wild for me..I left a piece of the orriginal hose on the ccv elbow and slipped mine over it with a hose clamp and snugged her up good..A one inch metal rubber expansion plug from ace hardware plugged the intake side like it was made to do it...I routed the hose under the coolant resivor yet over its big hoses and then between the master cylinder and a stainless (brake line?) down the side too end between the frame and wheel well cover right behind the tire....I started her and with a flash light saw a misty steam stuff that was not visible without the light..No more oilly cac boots and its got to prolong turbo and intercooler life...I will report back if I have any unsightly residues on the garage floor or truck..but from what i hear that should not be the case. For me Im real curious to see how it affects long trips (over 400 miles) because at the end of these my truck always seems a tad bit off and the next day its on the money and i speculate that it was from the oil bath that occured over such a long drive... I let the list know how it goes...My 2 cents

This is an excellent topic that should be discussed more deeply, is there any way that pics could be taken of the exact setup you did? So other users can get a visual idea of your CCV block mod. Excellent post! ...

Two questions:

1) Would that clear Poly hose from Lowes work over the cut elbow?

2) What department does one get a one inch metal rubber expansion plug? Got a sku number?

Unfortunatly...your truck will wind up coated in that oily residue you see with the light.
You need a catch can of some sort on the hose at minimum.
I was talking with someone about using a water seperator for that...but it was never tried to my knowledge.

That was probably me about the separator. I haven't had the time to look into where i would mount it. I think i need to look into making a kit with one of the RACOR CCV filters.

The Vdub guys have been doing this on the EGRed TDI for years... They just put in a filter that catches the oil and they rout it back into the intake.. Still get the air, no oil...
