Hopefully not my valve cover. Fingers crossed.

Sooooo anyway.....I am confused. I saw a pic (maybe here, maybe not) of this CCV delete done with a big loop near the pcv valve to keep it vertical.
Is that recommended?

Also does anyone know the size of the dipstick tube so I can get some of those push on nipples that are so tidy?

Lastly since this bypasses the CCV does that mean I can completely remove all the other CCV related items?
Items such as the valve itself, the cut off hoses, connectors, the now unused dipstick hose, etc.

Thanks for this awesome write up.
You can see the dip stick tube if you lay on your back behind the drivers wheel and look up past the front drive shaft. Mine did not have a hose clamp on it and I was able to reach up and push it off with a screw driver. I'm pretty sure it was 5/8 " fuel hose I used and plugged it and clamped just a short section then reached up and slid it on. You could also reach up and cut off the existing hose and use part of that. I just finished this mod and used the method in this thread that includes the "t" so that both ends of the intake manifold are hooked up. I thought this was good backup since the hose to back of the manifold is a small diameter and could narrow over time. I just left the dip stick hose dangling and did not remove any of the under manifold CCV apparatus. It really was very clean and simple. Read the whole thread and you will be very confident tackling this!

OK Thanks I'll try to find the dipstick tube and hose later.
I have not done this CCV delete yet...just weighing my options.
Didnt see it earlier but I didn't have ramps so I wasn't crawling around much under there.
Would it be ok to just leave that hose hooked up or would the vaccum cause problems?
I am really more worried about the loosing oil situation. I did look for the CCV but can't see it at all.
Not sure if I'm looking in the correct place.
I had the intake manifold ducting, air box , intake boot, DISA, ICV, drivers side engine cover and the under car splash guard off this morning.
Was replacing the old intake boot. And no I didn't take all that stuff off to replace the boot.
Was thinking of doing this delete to be done with this damn CCV disaster.

If I understand it correctly...and do this delete then later want to change it back all I need is two new hoses to replace the ones that got cut up.

And of course >>>a new CCV unit<<<.

Yes, you can get rid of all parts of the ccv. It won't be connected to anything anymore.

You can't see the ccv at all. I would totally take the intake manifold off if I did it again. I've done the whole job twice now and can do it with the manifold off in under 3 hours now. It sounds like it takes 3 hours of bad words of you leave it in anyway so Id take it off.

I am doing good to change out the intake boot, change plugs or do an oil change.

I had to have DIY's for those. Anything rather simple is ok. LoL

I don't know if you'll want to try to tackle taking it all out then. Just putting the pcv is easy enough though!

Yeah I figured I'd try this if I decide to not get the CCV changed out.
Thanks

Yeah seems like it's easy enough. Just not sure if I want to bypass it yet tho.
I wish I could have seen the CCV yesterday when I was replacing the intake boot. I had it off along with the airbox, DISA, and ICV.
It must be directly under where this CCV delete goes. I missed it tho. I looked at ECSTuning for a CCV and it shows to have only three outlets.
Two of them hook to hoses (to intake and to valve cover) and the other I think goes to the dipstick hose. Appears to only have one bolt holding it on.
This is the cold weather updated and insulated version. So it may be different than others I have seen shown on here.
Honestly don't really want to pay my mechanic to change a valve and two hoses either tho. LoL
