Mine is a SVT lower. I had it being held in with zipties for the longest time but I ended up plastic welding into place with the two ends. Yours should just snap into place I would think. I would remove your oem grill and see if it fits. Then probably cut the fogs ends off and put them in, then that euro grill.

Here is my link to my svt fitting.

My OEM engine cover (Ford quit putting one on Titaniums in 2013) arrived... after dark, of course. UPS does that to me a lot. Install of these is easy to do, especially with guidance from FF friend "Some Guy from NY" so I installed it with a flashlight in my teeth just now. Looking forward to a quieter engine tomorrow!

i really like the way you painted your factory rims. The lip and center caps really set it off, I got to suggest it to my brother.

I honestly don't think a engine cover is going to make it quiet. I've always thought they was just cosmetic. I've got one on my mazda I don't think it would make a difference if it was on or off. It's runs pretty quiet anyways.

It does look nice, too. But others say it quiets things. Could be placebo effect, who knows?
