V6 Engine Cover
 
2 Attachment(s)
Does anybody know the part number of the painted '3.6L VVT' engine cover? Mine does not have the VVT nor is it painted. I have attached photos of both. I think mopar started painting the letters and added the 'VVT' on the 2012's. Any help/info would be greatly appreciated, such as year and painted/non-painted letters.

Actually, I feel quite a bit more torque with the dual exhaust and ported throttle body. I have the afe cai in the box waiting for this weekend to install.

Fyi...its frp, which is 'flyin ryan porting'. He is a vendor on this site and does great work.

My lettering is painted just like in the picture. The cover itself is black plastic, unpainted.

i may be confusing some people. what i mean by painted is the lettering, not the entire cover. i'm looking for the painted '3.6L VVT' lettering. the rest of the cover would be unpainted. sorry if i wasn't clear.

Just get some of that Krylon plastic paint, spray it on a small, low-nap roller and roll over the lettering.
