KRE doesn’t list everything that they make on the website. I believe they can make one for you. Alston sells a blank plate. They are pretty easy to make, made my own years ago. To me, making stuff that you can’t buy was one of the best parts of building a race car from scratch.

Yes, 1/4” T6.

Between the block and timing cover? I've never heard of such a plate.
All Pontiac has a few front engine plates.
