Are you looking for the chrome oval piece that surrounds the honeycomb grill in the hood?

Yeah, mine is missing that chrome piece, but the honeycomb part is also missing a big chunk on one side. So at least I have the chrome now,

No need for the engine cover during the summer months. It just traps in too much heat.

Yeah but it looks WAY COOL and I am now in marketing mode...$$$...oh yeah; while my car was getting smogged the guru said he thinks what'* causing the serpentine belt squeal is the tentioner is a bit sprung to one side...since I cannot figure anything else out, I will probably take a crack at swapping it out. Looking at that mounting, I'm not sure what'* going on there. Is that some kind of rubber grommet? Am I looking at a several hour job there? It will actually tear up the belt given enough time, and it sounds terrible, so if I can I should take care of it. That'* what tore up the crank sensor in the first place,

the tensioner assembly is one of the only jobs that some stupid engineer really f'd up. you have to take it all apart and the coolant elbow has to be picked out of the assembly and the lower intake after it breaks coming out. you need to order the aluminum one before you start so you can use that one to put back in. on the back is another o ring i think i have never actually changed just the tensioner. i got the elbows because i was doing the lower intake gaskets

i put part numbers and pics here;
