4.0 V6 Plenum Cover

Well... I got a few laugh when I posted that I was going to use V8 plenum cover and convert it for use on a 4.0 V6 in my 07 Pony Package. I'm not completely finished with the paint work (almost) but I did want to get it mounted before I put the car in storage for the winter. Please let me know what you think. There is a company selling new covers for $187. for and that's unpainted.

It looks good! I got the same cover, with the blue FRPP valve covers CHEAP. I'm painting the manifold cover Sonic Blue, like my exterior, and will go back over the letters in silver. After that, some clear-coat, and she'll be as good as stock.

Here's my cover, freshly painted. Needing clear-coat, but I'm happy!

Looks great! Did you paint the lettering and the ribs with a brush?

Yes Sir! Spray paint in a plastic cup, and a 1/2" wedge foam brush. Have to make sure the brush isn't too wet, and use long strokes on the ribs. The letters can get dicey if you're careless (like I was...), but all in all, I'm happy with it.
Here's the finished product. I'll install it in a college weeks, when I do my valve covers.

That actually looks pretty good.

Thanks! It's not perfect, and I need to go around the sides of the letters and ribs with the silver to make them stand out, but I'm happy with it. And, including paint and time, I still spent less on it than if I had it professionally done.

Well, thanks, but I must admit, the pics make it look FAR nicer than it really is. There are several flaws that are noticeable. But, for a first effort at a quality spray-paint job, it turned out good. And was a great learning experience.

I'm confused. You started out with a silver colored cover on a v6. Now it's blue on a v8. Did I miss something here? I does look good.

The gentleman with the blue cover actually has a V8 and I believe he posted on the wrong thread. Mine is the silver cover that I modified to fit on my V6 pony. I intend to paint my cover tungsten to match the body cover with silver stripes and lettering. The whole reason for the thread was to show the V6 guys, even though you can't buy, at a reasonable price a 4.0l plenum, you can modify a V8 cover. I hope everyone understands that.

grbird88, can you take pictures or do a write-up of how you modified the GT plenum cover to work on our V6s? I really like the look of that. I had wanted to get one of the V6 ones and paint it Sonic Blue to match my car, but that now isn't an option, whereas a GT plenum cover is $90 from AmericanMuscle.

Yes, I'll be happy to. I will post some pics of the modification to the plenum cover. There is actually a blind threaded hole in the back of the block that I inserted a stud. Won't be able to take a pic because the car is in storage but I can give some direction.

grbird88, that would be fantastic. Just photos of the plenum modifications will be great.

Love to see the instructions and pics

I have a V6 and thought it was an impossibility to now get a plenum cover. I'll buy the V8 version and modify it. I've got a 2006 Legend Lime with the 4.0 V6

V6 Plenum Cover

I bought it on ebay. I a used V8 cover. I modified it to fit over the V6 plenum. There is a blind hole in the back of the block. I used threaded rod bent at 90 degree to support the back. Use rubber grommets. in the front I used a clamp to hold it in place. Just cut small pieces until you get it. I sold my V6 in 2014 and bought a 2014 GT. Good luck!
