Installation of a close down crankcase ventilation (CCV) filter system

I have a naturally aspirated ADC 140hp diesel in my trawler and the crankcase vents thru a hose from the valve cover to a cover on the intake manifold. Oil drips out of the cover and makes a mess of the back of the engine.
I am considering installing a Racor CCV filter system and am wondering if anyone else has experience with a CCV system.

Your engine will love you. Cleaner burn, less soot, better fuel economy, and cleaner engine oil will be the outcomes.
