Which engine cover for 03 V8?

My 4Runner didn't have the engine cover in place when I got it.

Is it supposed to be the black version or silver one?

And are these metal or plastic?

They are plastic. You can use either one, really doesn't matter. I don't run one at all, they are basically pointless.

Thanks.
Good to know that either will fit.

I'm just trying to make the engine compartment look a little nicer.
So I figured I'd go for the factory look.

I think it looks pretty good without the cover. Just IMO.

I have the silver one (VVTI 2UZ). A quick search online shows the sliver one on VVTI and non VVTI models. They also need a pair of brackets that sit on the manifold.

VVTI engines will have VVT-i on the cover. The 2 covers the OP posted are for non-VVTi engines. My 2003 is non-VVTi and came with the silver cover originally.

The plastic cover for the radiator on mine is severely chopped down now. You can see the difference if you compare the pic I posted with the engine cover to the one you replied to.

Edit - Actually that doesn't show it. This one does. You can see it goes over top of the headlights and down each side of them as well.
