5.7L Engine Cover ? (Dodge/Chrysler/Jeep)
 
I have a question regarding the engine cover..

I want to know if the 5.7L Engine Covers from the Dodge and Chrylser cars are the same as the Jeeps?? I know the "insert" is different cuz they have different logos but I wanna know if the bottom "Hemi" piece is the same..

My 5.7 did come with one cuz I guess the previous owner lost it or something... I wanna get one so I can mod it like the Lx guys..

Thanxs
Isaac

Nope, they are not going to fit.

The dimensions of the cover, location of the little things that hold it in place and also the supports are all different between the cars and jeeps...at least in the few I have seen that has been the case.

Yep, dr.lee is right. I've got one of each (Hemi LX and Hemi WK) and this has been asked before. Everything dr.lee said is correct, plus the WK one is also shorter, front to rear. Here's a couple pix of them.

I actually want a longer one to cover the rear cylinder intake runners as don't have the wiper cowling in the way on my project. How different is the placement of the holding posts as looked fairly similar in the photos I have seen?

I'm gonna paint the insert pretty soon and if anyone wants to know the 06 charger "5.7 v8" decal fits perfectly..

Looking good, z3. Post up some pictures when you've got it all painted.
