The engine cover won't fit because the top of the series 1 V6 (VN series 2 to VR) is different to the top of the series 2 V6 (also known as ECOTEC used in VS to VY)... the technical explanation is that the series 2 has a shorter deck height.

The VS supercharged V6 over the radiator cold air intake will fit perfectly, you'll need to cut a bit extra off the airbox bottom half where the hole is

In Australia the VN-VR V6's never came with a cover (if you're talking about the plastic cover), which is why the plenum on a VN-VR has 3800 engraved in it (the plenum on a VS is blank because the plastic cover is the "top")... you can get the valve rocker covers though, they're the same for VN-VY V6s.

If you're really keen I know of a forum member here (I think it was HoZy) imported a cover from America though with postage and possibly modifications it's a lot of work.

Sorry to forget but just to add: Another reason the VS-VY has the cover is to retain heat, basically so the engine can get to the optimal operating temperature quicker

EDIT: This is a listing for the rocker covers I mentioned: http://cgi.ebay.com.au/VALVE-ROCKER...3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=66:2|65:1|39:1|240:1318 though I think you can get them cheaper retail
