Why You Need This
In the past, crankcase blowby gases have been vented into the atmosphere. With all the new emissions requirements, Cummins has transitioned to a closed crankcase ventilation (CCV) system. The CCV system works by directing the blowby gases into your air intake tube, so that it is consumed by the engine. This results in a buildup of oil residue inside the intake system including the intake tube, turbo compressor, intercooler, and intake valves. This buildup can reduce the cooling efficiency of the intercooler, degrade rubber couplers, contribute to carbon deposits on the intake valves, and reduce the performance potential of the engine.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Can I delete the ccv filter under the valve cover when using this product?
A: The oem crankcase filter is capturing most of the oil vapors in the blow-by gases. The breather filter is not designed to provide the same functionality and may get saturated with oil vapors quickly if the oem crankcase filter is removed. We do not recommend removing the oem crankcase filter.
Q: Will I need a tuner to use this product without getting a check engine light?
A: Yes, in most situations, a custom tune or programmer will be required to use this product without getting an check engine light.
Q: Will oil leak out from the crankcase?
It is possible that some oil may leak out of the filter, however the 90 degree elbow we have provided helps to minimize oil leakage and redirect oil back into the crankcase. Over time, the breather filter may become saturated with oil and may start dripping slowly. Cleaning the crankcase filter as described below will regularly will prevent this from happening.
Q: How do I clean the crankcase filter?
A: Wash the crankcase filter with warm, soapy water and rinse thoroughly. Allow the filter to air dry or place it in front of a small fan. Do not use a hair dryer as the hot air can damage the filter media
