I never mentioned that I was leaving it vented OR say the CCVs function and purpose was stupid. My goal was to retain the function of the CCV minus the drain back and it's location. Once I install the pressure valve it will be a functioning system allowing vacuum without introducing oil into the intake. Plus easily accessible/removable etc.

4 hours, scraped up knuckles and fingers to replace a valve did not sit well with me. Now it is just a few bolts and clamps and a few minutes.
