Default What Subarus would have the same oil cap with a '90 legacy?

If you have a Perrin FMIC on an '08+ STI the intercooler piping prevents you from taking off the oil filler cap. The '90 Legacy oil filler cap is very thin and solves this problem. A friend of mine has one on his FMIC'd '08 STI and it worked. So does anyone know what year/model Subarus share the oil cap with a 1990 Legacy?

I have seen basically all the same ones go onto the N/A models between 90-98. All my oil filler caps are the same on all my cars. One is black the others are yellow, so take your pick for colors.

Are you talking about the filler CAP, or the filler NECK (the cap screws into the neck).

When I swapped in SOHC EJ25 heads, the filler neck is alot shorter than the ones used on EJ22 heads, you might try that also, if it will bolt up to your heads, which it should.
