CCV4500 Experience and/or Opinions???

With the upcoming smog BS here in CA, I'm looking at going back to a closed crank case setup on my daily driver. However, I have no desire to deal with the oily mess that can result.

So, I'm considering going with a Racor CCV4500.

I was wondering who is running, or has run, the CCV4500, and what is/was your experience with it?

Thanks!

Re: CCV4500 Experience and/or Opinions???

I believe that is the same one di sells. I had one and it worked well so long as you changed the filter every oil change. I was lazy and cheap (the filters are hard to find and cost 36 bucks). The red indicator didn't work for me. I hate emissions tests, thank god I don't have to deal with them here.

Best of luck

How difficult would it be to get the pipe for the CCV and keep the old setup. That way you can switch back at will before the test.

Here is the CCV kit I am using. I got it from NC Hornet. I know it is a bad picture. http://www.stealth-automotive.com/in...roduct_id=1372

BD Diesel Performance also has there own version of a similar Racor kit.
BD is a sponsor and so is Stealth Automotive.

Re: CCV4500 Experience and/or Opinions???

would it be possible to return it direct into the intake manifold instead of oiling up or charge air coolers? or possibly dump it into the exhaust? just food for thought idk how that would affect emissions dumping it into the exhaust though

People have dumped it into the exhaust and noticed that the crankcase pressure is higher.

It wouldn't be difficult at all. In fact, I still have the stock setup sitting here somewhere, and I have the ITP kit on my truck.

Unfortunately, venting to the atmosphere (which I think is the best option) still results in a hazy cloud behind the truck (if weather conditions are condusive) when at idle. The stinky haze can piss off the tree huggers nearly as bad as belching a bunch of black smoke. I'm trying to keep it clean.

The BD kits uses the CCV3550 which I don't think will flow enough for my application. It's a nice kit though.

And...I've heard too many negatives about the NCHornet kit. In particular, a number of people have noted that it does not catch all the oil.
