Yes..the cover comes with the emblem you dont ...
I put a "Vortex MAX" cover on mine. Same 3 piece cover. Not Caddy, but the exact same pieces, without the emblem. GM installed the LQ9, which is the higher compression 6.0L that is in the Escalades, in a few select Sierra and Silverado trucks with the "Vortec MAX" option.
Makes the engine bay look nice. Also has the sound padding underneath the center top cover, I assume to absorb some of the engine noise. I do wonder if the cover makes the engine run hotter, however.
