Default oil cap [FMIC]

ok for those out there in the SWIC with FMICs, which oil cap are you using? the reason for this question is is a buddy of mine ground down half of his oil cap so the APS DR525 FMIC piping could clear it. im trying to find him one for a stocking stuffer for christmas. anyone out there have a oil cap that doesnt need any modification to clear the FMIC piping/doesnt rub agaisnt the piping???

thanks in advance

I hope your friend is getting you something nice if you've already spent 285 bucks on him.

i think moxie has the spt cap. i like the cobb one as well, and that one does hit my piping as well, but doesn't grind into the piping material like the arc. the wbr fmic has very tight pipe routing.

I have the SPT cap.

I like it, and the size is about equal to stock.

Not much to say about it really, its metal, and cool lookin...
And you have to reuse the stock o-ring.

isnt the arc titanium? for 92 bux its worth it. anywho... the spt will still rub. the crazy pol whos rockin his aps fmic had to shave his down too.. he tried the spt here and it didnt even come close to fitting. how bout u just buy him a roll of duct tape and a dildo... if he dont like the duct tape then he can go phuk himself.

"what did you get your wife for xmas"
--- "I got her a pair of slippers and a dildo"
"????"
--- "if she dont like the slippers then she can go phuk herself."
