Well, technically the left one, but it's not doing anything for me.

The left one is the Ford OEM cap, the one on the right is a NAPA WIX cap designed for the WIX filter.

Same with this one below.


Same goes for the aftermarket filters. On the pic below, the left one is a Motorcraft/racor filter and the one on the right is a Puralator filter. Notice how the Puralator is shorter.

Some folks are putting a "Racor" Motorcraft filter in the cap on the right. Just doesn't work right. The fit, from what I have been seeing, doesn't close the drain valve in the housing.
