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.

i've been thinking about routing it over to the exhaust, so it get's sucked out the exhaust...

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...

A small K&N filter as the ones used to plug the Valve cover breather on imports, should be suffient to trap the oil, and the the air out. Ofcourse within mind that this filter is small, and must be cleaned with frequency.


Just an idea to add to Brians post!

This would be the best way if you plan on leaving it "open"...the exhaust will help "suck" out the vapors and they will be blown out the back of the truck...

PSDPlayer is right...I still think the filtered way is the best...with a Racor unit...

They have a kit at the VW site going for 140 dollars... Personally I would use a paper filter over a foam one... Foam will let oil vapor through..

Thats why you have issues with dirty MAF sensors if filters are over oiled.

I've had my crankcase rerouted for over 15k miles. Mine dumps under the truck, behind the rear door with no filter of any kind. There is oil in the hose, and if the hose creeps up on top of the frame it will make the frame wet, but the underside of the truck is not a mess.

If you decide to put something on the end of the hose as a filter, make sure that it's not restrictive in any way. I don't think a K&N style breather filter will accomplish much, you'll quickly find it dripping oil from the cotton material.

Just my 2 cents...FWIW.

What do you recommend as to not drip to the exterior? You haven't had any problems with just an open hose? :Thumbup:
I gave the example of the paper K&N style, but then realized it would be drenched in oil way to quickly and would work out well. Nice to hear about this, we need to continue this to have a perfected home made system, maybe with pics. as I know there are alot interested in this mod. :agreed:

Just out of curiousity do the people that have the vent to the ground pour there used oil in the sewer as well? I guess it goes hand in hand with the soot comming from the back. Over speeding the turbo will kill it faster than the oil getting on it, but who cares. Dump it to the ground, pour soot out the back, club a baby seal, and try to spin the turbo faster. Cause faster is better. 140% is better on a turbo that is undersized than 80% capacity on a turbo large enough to do it correctly.

I have done this mod on my other turbo money pit. I first did the K&N filter on the end of it and, yes it got wet quickly. So I ended up running the line into a hole in my frame under the truck. FIrst I blew it out with air. Then I pushed about a foot of hose inside of it. Not sure this is all nessasary but I just didnt like the the look of a heater hose just hanging there. I also like to think I have a little less rust somewhere in the frame

Calm down psd,
I started this thread but Im far from a seal cluber (40 cal. works better :roflmao: )..
I have a racor cv1000 open fiter ordered and when it arrives i will attach it, now were mine is routed i think the only thing that will get oilly is the frame or inner wheel well....The closed systems i investigated and do not think they are viable simply due too there requirements on distance from the vent and lack of room in the compartment (racor enginer's advice). I hope I dont oil the bottem of my truck but honestly some of it needs oil with the premature rust i got going on under there..PSD honestly Im trying to do it right and if you have any advice I sure respect your opinion.....Pics in a couple of days yall... The expansion plugs are usually in plumbing departments..

Is clubing a baby seal a new mod, you haven't mentioned yet???

Does it really make the turbo spins faster??

Why not put a filter in a canister that you empty when you change oil... Could be as simple as a can that food came in...
