Default Oil cap adapter

So i finished my remote turbo build however I have a bad oil leak right where my oil return goes through my oil cap. Is it possible to purchase a oil cap or a set of valve covers that has a -10an flared male adapter built into it?

This is the closest thing I found which according to the picture it looks like it could fit. Has any one tried this part on a 94 corvette LT1

As long as your covers use the "notched" oil fill cap then yes it's a fit. Your cap now needs to look exactly like the image in the link.

Earlier LT covers and some aftermarket covers use a nearly "fully threaded" cover. I believe all '92 covers were like these.

There is no difference in the LT/LS oil cap retention. The vendor is likely an LS orientated reseller and that's his only concern.

You will be fine!
