Stock motor? Can this go on a stock motor or does it have to be turbo/super charged?

Batamn

  • Yes, it can be used on a stock motor without problems. I think you'll find it looks pretty good when the hood comes up!

PCV valve or driver side port? Does this breather cap replace the PCV valve port on the passenger side valve cover, or the driver side port which attaches to the intake tube?

Is there a replacement filter for this? I didn't see a mention of a replacement filter, do you just rewash it? If you rewash it, is there a kit available like for the CAIs? Thanks.

NewMtang

  • With this breather element. It's an unopenable element. If it gets to the point it's not breathing properly just replace it. But breather elements last a very long time.

    5 min install and looks killer

    This is another great AM product! Very nice chrome and easy to install. 5 minute job. Just be sure to mount it low as you can, so the top doesn't hit your hood when you close it.

    Perfect

    Got this product in wake of installing my m112 supercharger kit on my v6. This breather cap was the perfect replacement for the hose that ran from my old intake to the heads. Now my heads can breath again.

    mAKE SURE IT IS ON TIGHT

    I put this cap on and thought zi had it secure--It came off after a few minutes and oil sprayed all over m y engine. I thought I had it tight, but not tight enuf- It looks well but it does NOT Fit very well. I wil only sit it on for showing.Won't mess trying to get it screwed down tight, The screw clamp can only get so tight and that may not be tight enuf to prevent the cap from coming off. Be Careful

    Old School Dressup

    This is a great way to give your Stang an old school classy look under the hood. Super easy install and a great value for the price. Took less then 5 minutes with a 5/16 socket or nut driver. Another great addition under the hood from Ford Racing!
