Arrow How To: PCV Reroute Kit LBZ

If anyone is in between buying or making your own PCV Reroute kit, I put this together to help out. I would first like to say that their are many kits out there that you can buy or put together. I am not saying anything bad about anyone's kit. I am simply just showing what I put together and how much the parts cost.

Parts you will need: (This is what I used)

6-8' of "Gates" 19B Plant Master Industrial strength braided hose 5/8". $3.69 a foot @ NAPA
PPE Billet Crank Case Breather Set. $39.99 @PPE
Hose Clamps (6) Pack of 10 @ Lowes for $8.40
5/8" Stainless T Fitting $8.00 Hardware store
1" Rubber cap $1
2" Rubber cap $3





You can get regular heater hose from Lowes or Home Depot for about $1.74 a foot. I decided to go with Gates 19B Plant Master hose because it is heavier duty. The hose is made for petroleum oils, karosene, fuel oil up to 120*F and lubricating oil up to 212*F. It can also be used for transferring gasoline or diesel fuel. This hose is more expensive but I decided to go with it because I feel it will hold up a bit better. This hose is about $3.69 a foot and I purchased it from NAPA. Depending on where you want to run the hose I suggest getting about 6-8'. I got 7' and had plenty to route it under the passenger side of the truck. Here is a link to information about the hose. > 19B PLANT MASTER® - Air & Multi-Purpose | Gates Corporation

Remove the 6.6L box on top of the motor and install the 2" rubber plug.

Remove your factory air intake elbow or your aftermarket CAI elbow so you can easily access the passenger side crank case 10mm bolt


Remove the 10mm bolts at the crank case on both sides. You will reuse these bolts when installing the new PPE fittings.



Remove the driver side intercooler boot so you can easily access the 10mm bolt at the crank case.

It is a good idea while you have the boot off to go ahead and clean it with a good degreaser to get the oil residue off of it.


Next, remove the stock PCV system and plug the hole with the 1" rubber cap.





Then, install the new PPE billet fittings in the crank case. Make sure you use some lube, oil, or wd-40 on the billet fittings and the inside of the hose to help slide the hose onto the fittings. I used a hose clamp on each side where the hose slides into the PPE Fittings.

When installing the hose, you will be able to determine how much hose to use from the passenger side crank case to the driver side. Cut the hose someone near the middle right around the turbo MP. This is where you will install the stainless T fitting, hose clamps and use the remainder of the hose to route it to wherever you like under the truck.



This is also a good time to clean your motor after you finnish the installation. I used a little bit of greased lightning mixed with water and let it soak for a few minutes. Lightly rinse and try and avoid heavy spray on the wiring harnesses. While the motor is still damn, apply a good coat of WD-40 to hoses and motor.


Some people like to use a filter for the end of the hose where its routed under the truck. Or you could use a catch can. Whatever your personal preference is.

I hope this helps!

Nice write up. Seems easy enough.
Not to sound like a total newb but...
Whats the reason for doing this? Would this be the same on my LMM? And...
Will this void my warranty? Not quit ready to void my warranty yet.
Thanks

If you are worried about warranty, don't do it. And if you notice his one picture, there is Oil all through the intake tube....it basically stops the oil from being there and it just exits the truck.

You should give it a try. It is not very expensive and it does not take long to do.

ya'll having any diesel fume issue? such as smell? this reminds me of my 03 i had with the blow by tube it had. this is the same idea they had back then, and it still smells at times. im thinking about extending mine down the frame under the drivers side and stop it about even with the bed.

Thanks Dmax07, I poked around under my hood on sunday looking at this and the only pictures I could find on this forum were to a LLY. I'm ordering the billet crank case fittings and replacing the whole thing instead of adding the elbow at the bottom of the stock "T" like originally planned.
