Default 3800 series 2 plastic, just decoration?

Whats that engine cover for? You know the one that says Series 2 V6?

Is it just decoration or does it serve a purpose?

Aaaww

So sweet

It does make me happy to read that I have one of the best engines ever. So since it serves no purpose Ill take it off and let it decorate the garage.
