Hey guys,
I was just wondering, seen it on a few 5ltr's, a breather cap...
Firstly, what does it do??
Second, what does it go over??
Thirdly, would it fit on an EcoTec and would it be seen??

Anyone with a pic of one on an EcoTec or even a Buick 3.8??

Cheers :yeah:

Yeah, I am interested in this as well.. That was the exact one i was looking at as it was the only one to fit the large oil cap hole. I Was Just at the auto store as my mate just got a new one on his HZ 5lt.

What im worried about is that do these motors need a tight seal, eg oil cap??

When i have the cap on the motor makes a different noise to when i take the cap off?

Also i was told over time some oil could seep through, and that Johnny Law would not loo kindly at them..

I only want it as a Wank Spec item as its shiney alloy, will go good with the strut brace and colour coded engine bay!! :whistling

wont fit directly onto a stock v6 rocker cover, but will fit on the finned alloy ones, as i have one on mine, i got the "holden" finned covers.

they are there to allow crankcase fumes and such to vent, but the v6 uses a setup that makes it vent back into the intake system, for emissions laws. really isnt needed on a v6, but if you've got the finned rocker covers, go for it, or buy a second oilcap and cut a hole and mount one to that.

and yes, mr plod wont like it if they really want to sting you.

you will get a bit of oil come out, but nothing to worry about.
