Hello Im running a late model stamped steele valve cover on my renix controled 4.0 ho. My question is how should I hook up the ccv system? right now both fittings are open on the valve cover and the back vaccum fitting on the intake is connected to the a/c- axle actuator hose, (I know this is were the stock ccv line connected). Is the orifice built into the rear fitting on the valve cover, or intake. Thanks for any help.

This is what I came up with. Just need a filter for the front port, or If I can find the factory air box I may go back to it. No more blow by, seems to be working good. Mine has all the emissions stuff takin out, the po was a hack, nothin was hooked up right.

Isn't the orifice made into this fitting? Thats what I found when I researched the later style ccv system.

Didn't like it, and it was missing the front ccv fitting, had a stamped steele one on hand so I swaped it, also like the gasket on these, re used it and no leaks even with one less bolt, someone snapped off in the head.

Had the same setup on my stroker as well. There's different size grommets so I bought a variety (5pc) pack along with my breather.
