1996 3.8 V6 Bird vs. 3.8 V6 Cougar ??

Will the same timing chain cover and subsequently the oil filter fit both the 96-97 Bird 3.8, V6 and Cougar 3.8L V6 engines?

Does the engine differ in those respects?

Any input is welcome...

Yes it will. The only difference is the bodies.

Truthfully, that is what I thought I just wanted to make sure. Thanks again.

well wait, what year is the cougar? timing chain covers changed from year to year. Which may mean you'd need the same year waterpump also. Sounds like youre saying they're both 96-97's, so yes they should be the same if that is true.
