Filter cap says "Carquest DO NOTE RE-USE". WTF???

OK, so I'm changing the oil in my new-to-me 2008 and once we get the filter housing cap off it says "Carquest DO NOT RE-USE" on the side. OK, so it's an aftermarket filter housing cap, but the filter inside is completely different than the stock 6.4 Motorcraft filter. I mean its longer, skinnier and has different top and bottom fittings where the filter seats on the cap and I guess down inside. Are there different filters/housings on the Job 1's? Do I need to find a FoMoCo filter cap and will the "real" motorcraft filter fit? This is the most puzzling thing I've seen changing the dang oil.

Very important that you throw that cap in the garbage and get a new oem cap from ford and a oem filter as well

Very much what I assumed. Very saddening. Not to mention I just had brand new 5inch exhaust put on and there is some oil coming out...not sure how much yet but I'm thinking I'm working on borrowed time...

Ha!! Same thing just happened to me. I paid a joint to change my oil the last time and demanded they use motorcraft, though they didn't..

I picked up a new cap from ford today, along with filter and cetane booster.. just finished changing it out.. i didn't see any leaks or anything, though..

I'm subscribed here though.. would love to know the ramifications of using that filter and cap, if someone would explain it, thanks in advance.

Like sticky, burnt oil...at least I think so...it's all along the bottom of the pipe (on the inside of course) and while I was underneath today I noticed a little pushing out where the muffler connects to the pipe... it doesn't smoke and it doesn't 'run' or 'drip' out...just a filmy sticky residue. Does anyone know if FoMoCo filter caps are expensive? Or should I just get a billet one from RCD? decisions, decisions...

The cetane boost, the filter and the cap cost me $60 today, if that helps you at all..

I bought it used and it had what appeared to be super clean stock exhaust...the more I look at it the more I'm pretty sure it was either a used system put on after this dealer got it at auction so he could sell it legally or they painted the tail section or something. Anyway. Just a case of people trying to be slick willy's. I drove the truck stock for about 3 days and noticed nothing in the stock pipe.

also I'm running a spartan 210 EL tune right now.
