Mil eliminators

I was wondering which mil eliminators are for a 96 thunderbird I found these on eBay but the seller says it wonít fit a thunderbird but they are for a 4.6l mustang.
Will the mustang ones fit thunderbirds or is there specific ones for our vehicles if so I cannot find thunderbird eliminators.

Those are easy to make; it's a 1M resistor in series with the signal wire, and a 0.01uF capacitor to ground on the eec end of the resistor.

It has to be waterproof; I'd make sure if I bought a set they weren't full of salt, and were waterproof.

The ones I bought failed in a snow storm; I bought a tuner instead.

I had a feeling they would work the guy selling them says they wonít fit but Iím sure heís just covering his butt because heís not sure if they will work. Iíll have to find out if theyíre waterproof I didnít even consider that as an issue, thanks for the heads up. Iím sure theyíre easy to make but for $20 plug and play Iíll pay the little extra for the convenience fee. Thanks for the replies guys.

So I purchased and installed these mil iliminators and now I have both p0420 and p0430 codes pending, I thought these were suppose to eliminate those codes. Do you guys have any idea why I have both coming up now when I didnít have them before. Itís like the opposite effect happened.
