Yes, its pretty much identicle to the a fox mustang swap except you don't have to trim off the door handles. Ours are further back and do not interfere. The mn-12 cars use the same style steering wheel and column cover. The steering shaft a column is different. You have to trim a bit around the windshield.

I honestly dont think you could exceed the cost of a new car buy installing new *stock* parts everywhere in your coug our tbird. Its just plain impossible. You could revamp the entire drivetrain/engine/suspenstion and still come out ahead.

I was saying the column trim covers for an mn12. The mn-12 is completely different. All fox parts are built on the same structure so most parts interchange
