CCV woes....

I am getting a CCV pressure fault. (140k miles) Before I drop 120 bucks on this part again, I am wondering if it is even needed. ON the videos and diagrams I have seen with folks removing them, removing the filter media, and then reinstalling in original location. Plumbing a relief hose down the frame to drop oil on the ground. (not a fan of this)

I dont see a need to even keep the CCV filter case in the location. By simply plumbing the vent line from the air intake by the turbo and into an oil catch can or improvised filter can, I believe the job is done. Removing the CCV altogether should not affect the performance or venting of the crank case. I understand currently it is done under light vacuum and any residue gets sucked into the turbo....... blahhhh.... not good.

Under the CCV housing I see two gasket-ed holes, one in one out. Oil in the CCV cover location should be of no consequence. I would love to hear thoughts/ideas.

It's only $76 bucks and you only have to do it every 65k miles. I'd leave it.
