Indeed it will.
It will however prevent any visual check to see if some oil is leaking from the Solenoids. In my case, it was pretty severe, as I did a visual check while the engine was running and oil while was gushing everywhere. Some may experience a smaller/slower leak. I admit however that the engine cover looks pretty darn nice :)
