Nice Avator, and don't buy the caps. They don't work that well, some glue on top of your factory caps. I have a set in my basement that I test fit, and was not happy, so I never used them.

I like them
I have no issue with leaking, I did have the vent hole in the power steering cap , got water in my fluid, turned it pink, flushed it, sealed the vent hole, no problem sense

I have seen some other billitt caps that have a nicer look IMO

If I had it to do over I would buy them again

They look nice but IMO I would pass on them. I wish I never bought them but a lot of that is due to the agrivation caused. I have all of them but the PS fluid cap on the car and have not had issues with them but they really are not that functional. If you drive then grab you will see what I mean. I'd save my $ on this one personally.

I'm pretty sure you want to go with the set of seven:
1. Oil fill
2. Oil Dipstick
3. Brake Fluid
4. Power Steering
5. Washer Fluid
6. Radiator
7. Intercooler

The set of 6 most likely doesn't have the intercooler.

First I was not sure to buy a set. I was in LV last weekend and discussed the problems with Scott Drake. The set is renewed. So I bought the set.

The cap for the powersteering has no hole anymore. The original Ford cap hasn't one either. The underside of both caps look the same. The engine oil, coolant and supercharger coolant caps are not glued on anymore. They all have two allen screws on both sides that work very well. Nice fit and no glueing. The washer fluid and brake fluid caps are also nice. The stock rubber of the brake fluid cap need to be reused, but is still a teeny bit to small for the new cap. The oildipstickcap is now redesigned so that it won't touch the throttle body. It is thinner in design.

Question is how to remove the pin from the stock dipstick? And must I reuse this pin on the new cap. Anybody knows that?

They also aid that if you have the old design to call them up and they will get you a new cap that doesn't have the hole.

You need the correct size drift pin [ punch] to tap it out, do it over a paper or something to avoid losing it.

There are two sets of caps to consider, 4.6L and 5.4L. Buy the wrong set, and you will have fitment issues. Why? Well, I really don't know.

I bought the 4.6L kit through e-bay from BlueOvalIndustries and I got Scott Drake products. Everything worked out perfectly, over 3K on them now, no leaks, no tarnishing, or, discoloration. The PS cap has a retaining strap, and mine was defective, but in a week, I got a replacement. Overall, I'm very happy with this mod.

I also bought the fuse box cover, and it came opened, with a GT fender badge installed. I didn't mind, 'cept that it was positioned in an odd way and I wanted more. So, I ordered the S H E L B Y trunk lettering kit from SPP, and did a "do over". Now I like it a lot.
