The engine cover should be secured by clips to both fuel rails. You should be able to gently pry it up and slide it forward under the strut tower brace. I've never removed a V cover but judging from how the covers are attached to the LSx engines in the Corvette I would imagine the V being attached in a similar fashion.

Install a wide band oxygen sensor in place of a stock sensor:

I'm going to be putting z06 fuel rail covers (and long tubes) on mine this weekend, pretty sure that strut tower bar has to come off.
