anything thats for a ford 8.8 will work. people have run into problems with the SOLID brand covers, but some have had good luck with them.

I run a heavy duty Mag-Hytec setup - no issues here. I really like the large 4 quart capacity as well as the drain plug/dip stick setup.

Very pricey however - Mag-Hytec 8.8
