2014 engine shroud "V6" vs "VVT"

Is there a difference in engines as my shroud only says "V6" .... Yet I have seen a lot of engine shrouds that say V6 and the VVT also?
Thanks

Mine has been hermetically sealed and kept in a #2 mayonnaise jar on Funk and Wagnall's back porch since noon today.

It'll be worth more that way. Bidding starts at ...

A engine shroud that's what it is. Mine has been off since first off roading trip. That is a dirt trap got back and had 2 inches of dirt and dust under mine. The engine shroud, the front air deflector, stock antenna and the back seat made it threw 1 off roading trip I haven't seen any of them in a year now

The very first "mod" I do to any new car is throw the engine cover in the trash can. I hate em.

Getting rid of mine has given me 3 more Miles Per Gallon and 25 horsepower.

but in reality, I do think getting rid of it reduces engine compartment temperatures while off-roading.
