I thought the ccv delete only deleted the connection to the turbo and vents the blow by to atmosphere. So I would think you would still need the filter

5.9 valve cover comes to mind. But maybe it won't fit not sure. I have seen some custom valve covers for the 6.7 starting to pop up.

the 5.9 VALVE COVER takes too much to modify, and what you have been seeing are FILTER COVERS for the 6.7, not valve covers like a 5.9

No I'm talking about valve covers. Diesel Transmission Tech did a limited run of some killer ones. You may contact them and see if they plan on doing any more. I have also heard helmann may do a few limited runs for the 6.7. Here are the pictures of the ones DTT did.

Also diesel power is showing Dr. Performance is making a 1 piece valve cover for the 6.7. Heres the link to their article.

I just put a K&N crankcase filter on, and turned up a plug for the hole in the intake.
I did not have many miles on my truck when I took this picture:



And the rest looks like this:



It doesn't seem worth it to try and take out the CCV filter. It lasts for quite a while anyways. So, if stock appearances are not important, it seems like a cheap, worthwhile mod to just vent the CCV, and plug the intake.

I just bought a crankcase filter (K&N part #62-1360) with a 3/4" end on it from an auto parts store, and used one of the spring clamps from the original setup. K&N has a couple filter options - #62-1560 or RU-3630.
Then I turned up a piece of aluminum to 3/4" diameter, with a larger head on it to push into the hole in the intake, and used one of the spring clamps that I pulled off the stock hose going from the CCV to intake. You could really use anything with a 3/4" diameter.


Here is the plug I made:



This is the filter setup, and a look under the CCV cover:



It is pretty easy to do, and I think it is worth it.
I should put in a plug for Glacier Diesel - they have a kit to do this exact same thing, but their kit has a nice little elbow for the filter.

AGAIN, these are just FILTER COVERS on a 6.7, they do nothing to replace any type of VALVE COVER on the 6.7. these are just a LOOKS only item.

So far I have not noticed any exhaust smell in the cab, but others could have a different experience.
