Default intake upgrade question

have an Old man intake upgrade from kerma. does not have CCV input. worth installing on alh to replace cruddy plastic pipe that hooks between turbo and accordion from airbox or just leave it alone. again. no way to route ccv in to intake since no ccv hole in it. best to leave it alone and just cuss kerma for selling a newb that pipe 3 years ago or so with no warning as to deletes it would require? or worthwhile to install? paid an armload for that thing when i was first building an alh and had no idea what i was doing...still dont know much but know enough to tell that kerma was really sorry on their support.

I have the darkside TIP which is almost the same. I didn't put my ccv in the intake. I just left I plugged in and tucked it behind the pipe work.

You can vent it to atmosphere. I would either get a longer hose and run it to the ground or get a catch can setup for it.

Your engine produces some amount of blow by with each combustion event. Couple that with the vacuum pump that empties into the crankcase and you should have no worries about sucking anything in through the ccv

You can put a small filter on it but usually it gets saturated with oil. You won't have any problems with dust.

drill a hole into the OMI and line it with a grommet, so it looks like a OMI with a CCV hole

Not at all. Do like the other guys said to. Put your own catch can on. That way you don't get blown by on the valve cover and misc other things.

Most tractors back in the day vent straight out to atmosphere. More dust in daily field work then a gravel road once in a while.

Semi trucks vent to atmosphere, all heavy equipment does as well.

I have the same pipe from Kerma and love the look, and I purposely purchased it because it didn't have the bung. I vent straight to the ground.

Oil doesn't need to be in the intake. Just my 2 cents.
