On the top front of the intake manifold are two tabs that look like something might mount. Is there a cover, in some other market or model, that closes the space between the cover over the fan belt and the manifold?

There's a cover for the serpentine belts, but it doesn't use these mounting holes - see it in the 2018 engine bay here:


You really should get one and put it back on there, BTW.

Back holes on the manifold might well be for the H6 3.6R engine cover. [Correction: obviously, this manifold doesn't work on the 3.6R - so these may be for an H4 cover that is supplied outside of the US market.]

Right, had the original cover off, painted it body color cuz I had leftover paint.
