some folks feel the need to vent the crankcase to the atmosphere instead of the intake.

Re: ccv

to be honest ...pretty much a waste of time in my book ...gasp, but pretty much accurate.

done wrong it will pressurize your crank case and push oil out everywhere.
(really good thread somewhere on that one.)

done quick and sloppy, it dribbles oil and stinks, pollutes water runoff.

done right it is expensive and most are too cheap.

done half right you need to maintain it closer, eventually it will saturate and not work as well...but better then the alternatives.
( pvc catch can style, nchornet, and a few others have some pics of this.)

Tried that once and it wasn't as good as dumping it down to the ground like the T444E does.

Re: ccv

building the can out of some PVC is simple easy and works perfectly. It beats having your truck sh!t where it eats. Oil in all the silicon boots. Now we have all new kind of $$ boots all becasue we shoot dirty carbon filled old oil down the intake. At the very least build a can and route it back to the intake. It shoudl catch most of the oil. More blow by more oil as well.

3" PVC pipe, 2 end caps ( one screw on clean out type), pvc primer and glue back, 000 steel wool, 2 PVC threaded barbs hose fittings, one 5/8 to 3/4 barbed hose fitting, one petcock or PVC threaded ball valve, silicon sealant. Thread one fitting (90 degree) into the top cap. Thread the other near the bottom of the pipe right above the bottom cap. Thread the ball valve or petcock in the bottom cap. Fill the pipe with steel wool. 5/8-3/4 fitting into line from the VC dog house to 3/4 hose to the lower barbed fitting in the catch can. Install a hose to the top fitting and run out the rear or back to the intake. When you do your oil change open the petcock or valve and let drain any oil that has settled in the bottom if any. Use 3/4" fittings and hose.

If you are worried about smoke drawing attention then route the hose right next to your tail pipe tip.

Total cost about $30 give to take. Will not cause any back pressure. Will help remove most all oil mist from the vapor so no oil drip from the hose end to ruin your driveway or garage floor.


The oil filled fumes will enter into the lower half of the can. The oily mist will collect on the steel wool mesh. As it does and the droplet build they will fall to the bottom. The hot fumes will rise up and out the top fitting and hose to atmosphere or back to intake.

Re: ccv

Frankly I see no value in the ccv mod, now proven otherwise maybe.
but proof that it is un needed seems easier.
aside from my boots being small and orange...they still hold up fine after 12 years and 180k, as is my turbo. maybe the extra oiling is a good thing.
But i am open to other ideas.

The problem i see is steel wool will become saturated and be nothing more then an oily pad obstructing flow.
see this in restaunt hoods all the time. That is the key behind the racor design, the filters are changed.
if doing the pvc route i would have a drain at the bottom for service draining, but I would make the body unscrew to change out the media or make sure it hasn't settled etc.
plus you have to have a clean system to start with, otherwise redue will just keep getting blown out of the IC..maybey after doing a spearco swap would be a good time.

I had a design at one time that would flip the dog house around , feed a small servicable tank, and then return back to the intake. plenty of decent catch tanks on the "Bay" finding one that split would be harder.

just my 2 cent.

if I just had to do the ccv mod my order of doing it would be ,
buy the racor kit, $$$$
diy if you can do it right.
or just buy rauls kit.

I do know that I don't have boots that blow off anymore. They blew off a couple of times in the past usually when I was boosting it above 20. The last time it blew off after the mod was because the nut on the clamp came off. Seems like the mechanic replaced the lock nut with a regular nut when he lost the lock nut. I'd fire him but it is hard to do that when you are the tech.

There are millions of T444E units that vent to atmosphere. Ford does it this way for emissions reasons. If it really oiled the turbo, wouldn't International have done the same thing?
