Engine Cover

Hello

My car does not have the performance package and does not have the right side engine cover.

I am interested in getting the cover as I think it will dress the engine up a little.

What does "TiVCT" mean?

If you have added one to your car can post a picture?

Here is an Ebay link. OEM NEW Ford Mustang "MAYHEM Package" V6 Engine Cover

Thanks for the reply.

That kind of sealed the deal.

What brand of CAI do you have? It looks great.

Steeda CAI. Only tune required CAI for our sixxers and I wouldn't want to own anything else. Had a JLT for a little bit, but no comparison

It's Twin Independent Variable Cam Timing, or something along those lines.

I'm actually looking at ordering an engine cover too here pretty soon.

I got one a few weeks ago myself. It's a little expensive considering what it is, but in the end it's worth it. It really completes the engine bay.

not sure what it looks like without but wouldn't adding a cover just induce heat?

No more than the 2013+ Stock GT engine cover adds. The V6 looks non-symmetrical, and lopsided without the cover. This make the engine look like it should. Reason for the lopsided is the best intake manifold anyone could make for the 3.7 is swooped over the passenger side. Ford did tons of computer work on this design. On a Front drive it looks proper, on a rear drive it looks lopsided. Engine cover makes it look American V8 almost

Yes I bought one on my past V6/auto like within weeks, it does come on V6 Perf Pak Manuals as stock , but not the Autos.

I believe Ford calls the cover an engine insulator and it serves to keep the engine temps equal on each bank. Since the passenger side of the engine is insulated by the intake it would tend to be warmer than the driver side bank. Engine heat is supposed to be removed by the radiator not the air around the engine anyway.
I don't know how important that REALLY is but it's a good story and I'm sticking by it.
P.S The engine looks pretty bad without it and that's why I bought it.

This cover can also be bought at Late Model Restoration, it's where I bought mine. Careful though, they run out all the time. Had to wait awhile for mine lol.

They only come factory if your mustang has the performance package.

I do have the performance package but it didn't have an engine cover. Was this different on the 2014? I have only had my car for under 2 months

That's why I called ford directly and not the dealership. Ford put in a claim and said it shouldn't have passed it's final factory inspection since it was left off. The dealership wants to 'look' at it first but ford said either they replace it or I will be sent the package in the mail

Here is an Ebay link. OEM NEW Ford Mustang "MAYHEM Package" V6 Engine Cover
Put TiVCT" in the google search box...you'll know all that you ever wanted to know about it.

As to the cover...I don't care much for it. I guess I'm a bit old fashioned in that I like to see some of the actual engine details. Too many modern day engines put large plastic covers on the engines topside, covering whats below.
