V6 Engine Cover install Help

I just got my V6 engine cover in the mail today. I did not install it yet. I was wondering if anyone who has put this cover on could help me out. There is a piece of black foam on the motor that looks like it would get in the way of the cover. Do I remove this piece of foam to instal the engine cover?

Thanks

It won't. Just pop the tabs in on the cover and it'll line itself up.

Don't buy used, I have fuel line holding mine in the tabs and the strut bar assisting.

If you have an aftermarket Cold Air Kit (CAI), minor trimming of the intake cover may be required to clear the Crankcase Vent Tube.

Dont remove the foam. It's insulation for the fuel rails. Also, if you have an automatic you're going to have to get a dremel and trim the engine cover to fit

Yeah, I do have an Auto as well as a dremel. So I can trim what ever has to be trimmed. Thanks for the help.

I used scissors and sandpaper as the previous owner rough cut it. Too much foam dust with power tools

All I used was scissors to trim it.

You don't have to remove anything but may or may not have to trim around the hose a very little bit with an automatic. Your gonna love the cover. It fills in the ugly side of the engine.
