Great quality piece, but needs improvement.
I purchased the 4 piece set for my 2012 GT, and all of them but the oil cap fit perfectly, and have no issues. After driving the car and the engine heats up, the oil cap slowly starts to twist open. The OEM oil cap is plastic, and fits much tighter in the oil port. I noticed the gasket on the OEM cap is a little thicker and seems to seal better. The metal cap is heavy, and the heat generated by the engine slowly backs the oil cap off. I noticed this because I saw oil residue all over the valve cover, and it was because of the cap opening up over time. The quality of the piece is excellent, but something needs to be done to be sure it can't back off. The factory plastic cap doesn't do this because plastic doesn't absorb heat like the metal piece.
