I'm doing some engine compartment clean up and got rid of the home plate set up and ordered a CAI . The oil filler now sticks up and I'd like to remove it ,it just unscrews ,and run a normal cap .Will cap cap from a Camaro or Corvette work or will I have to replace the valve cover because of the way the filler tube attaches to it ?

You can run the stock cap on that valve cover without the tower. Unscrew tower, put cap on valve cover. Easy.

do different year LT1 equipped cars have different oil caps? as on mine while the neck is threaded the cap is a twist lock so you can't pull the neck off and put the cap directly on the valve cover.

Unscrewed the tower and the stock cap is larger and does not screw in as goldwolfnhn mentioned above . I can't see GM using a valve cover specific to this application ,looked at LT1 Camaro and Vett caps on Ebay and they don't look like they screw on but I maybe wrong. Planning to go to Pull A Part to look for some stuff I guess I'll add a cap to the list before I order a new one .

On my '94 it just fit right on the valve cover. I have the same issue as you two on my 95 ( my 94 was wrecked and long gone).

That said I just recalled my 94, I swapped the valve covers as the originals were rusty and I got hold of a minty fresh pair, so not sure where they came from. Big help I know, lol. But you are both right ha ha.

94 Woody noticed on your post that you don't have the oil filter cap extension on your car did you change the valve cover or find a cap that works with the stock cover ? I'm in the process of cleaning up my engine compartment and getting rid of the stock air cleaner assembly don't like the look of the extension .

Neither. I used the cap that was on the extension. Fits perfectly. Did the same thing on my old 94 as well.
