Oil Filter Funnel?

I was thinking of changing the oil instead of having it did. Looked like removing the filther would be messy. So I clumb underneath for a better view. Look what I found.

Is this from the factory or a previus owner's fix?

Factory....guess that would explain it. What's the purpose or is it part of the filter?

I think its to keep oil from leaking on the starter when you remove the filter...or something like that. Its been a while since I've messed with it though so I could be wrong.

My 3.0 has one on it and it saves on a messy oil change.
