    Default Low Duratec cam cover

    I'm putting a 2.5L in Birkin and the oil filter cap is just a little too tall. I thought about getting the Raceline cover, but it isn't designed for coil on plug ignition. Does anyone know if Raceline cover can be used with coil on plug, or another alternative?

    How much room do you need to free up? Massive Performance makes a low profile filler cap that might be enough. There may be similar options available from others or you could have someone 3D print a cap that provides necessary clearance.

    I thought Tom C solved this problem? Cannot remember what he did though.

    Try Tom Carlin. He had some made locally. I have one and it is well done. It solved the clearance issue I had with running a 2.3 in a 2 liter chassis. Well machined, o-ring included as well as the low profile filler cap. I think it was about $400.

    This is a recent shot of mine. The nice thing is that you can powder coat it to look fulfill your wildest imagination!
