I would suggest maybe a Phenolic (or however its spelled) Spacer. That should move the elbow up and hopefully give you enough room to clear that. Other than that...I got nothing :/

Re: Need help!!!!

Is using a spacer between the elbow and intake possible? (Some intakes have the elbow cast into them.)

If not you will need a flat cap and just have to deal with it or try to move the fill cap to the back of that valve cover or to the other side valve cover.

I thought about putting a 1 inch throttle body spacer between my elbow and intake i don't know if that could be a fix or not

As long as it will clear the strut tower and 1" will let it clear the oil fill cap it should work.
Take it loose and hold it out 1" and see if it will clear.


Or if you have room at the rear of the engine on the other side of the engine, you could swap the valve covers.
