Mini-mod for intercooled OBS trucks

After I installed my intercooler last summer, Oil changes became a pain in the a$$ when it was time to refill the crankcase with the air pipes in the way, and the funnel flopping around since the funnel tip is touching a rocker through the valvecover hole.

The $8.00 solution: Ford part 4C4Z-6783-AA

Simply remove oil filler cap, twist in extension pipe, snug up with slip-joint pliers or a big crescent, install oil cap.

Before: where the hell is the oil cap??


After: AHHH...there it is!!


when the dealer called me to tell me the part was in, they wanted to know if I wanted to book an appointment to have it installed!

yea that's pretty cool. I might consider gettin' one anyways cause it's hard to pour oil in the valve cover without gettin' it everywhere anyways

I've seen that before, but I think that is a super mod, even for non-intercooled trucks!! I know I've had my share of spilled oil, during oil changes!


Thanks for posting the part number too!

Yeap, Those are normally installed with a intercooler kit. I believe the BANKS installation manual says to install one when installing a intercooler

At least that is what it read quite a few years ago when i read it, (probably back in 2000)
