CCV Issue?

So my buddy just did CCV, he is venting to atmosphere under hood with no line from doghouse. He doesnt notice smell or mess or anything, but i was wondering if its possible to lose power? He said now that he change the intake and the CCV isnt being sucked in its feels like a loss of power? Is that possible?

Re: CCV Issue?

CCV has nothing to do with performance at all. Re-routing the CCV simply keeps oil from being introduced into the CAC system, and keep from blowing boots off as well as keep the engine bay cleaner.

If he's noticing a drop in performance, then something came unplugged while he was working under the hood.

Re: CCV Issue?

He says it very slight... I think its in his head... he thinks it is becaues the fumes are being sucked out of the ccv there is something going on now.

Re: CCV Issue?

The smoke, smell and general association of loss of power means the engine is junk
















at least that is what I read

Re: CCV Issue?

lol. Like i said, he thinks he lost little power by venting to the atmosphere, i dont really see how that is possible. And he says it doesnt smell, so it must not bother him or whatever, but like i said, the issue is he's saying he lost a little power. I dont think the intake sucking the fumes and making a negative pressure on the crank case was giving him power (because thats whats going on in his head). Im just trying to see if 1. its possible and 2. has anyone ever experienced something at all similiar?

Re: CCV Issue?

If you are venting under the hood, you are venting all that CCV juice all over your engine compartment.

Re: CCV Issue?

putting a vacuum pump on a motor will make 50hp or more on high hp engines. your stock ccv is located in a vacuum, the air/vapors gets "sucked" out of the crankcase thus reducing the crankcase pressure this lowers the resistance on the pistons downstroke. these engines are soo inefficient to start with i doubt the loss on power is even measurable. this is just my .02, btw i have the cvv mod done to my truck, i need to build some pump brackets for a vacuum pump.
