fordsforever73 Degas cap is basically the rad cap, but it is on a smaller tank that is attached to radiator via a hose. It's located next to the brake master cylinder. The newer cap has a much beefier spring that will hold the coolant pressure inside the tank. The original can be weak, allowing coolant to leak out.

The blue spring upgrade was introduced to raise the fuel pressure to help injectors last much longer. It's located on the side of the fuel filter housing. There is a cover with 4 screws and the spring is under that. The newer spring is blue in color and will raise pressure from approximately 45 psi to about 55 psi.
