I'm going to say yes, someone correct me if I'm wrong.

It's not a 97 Sport, it just looks like one!

Mass. TCCoAers, Send me your info!

I buy all my Ford parts from 93 lx.

Owch that's pricy!

Eh, it's not that much more than any of the external girdles ($160 for the Billet Flow brace) or other covers (JPW ~$200). I paid $231 shipped for mine. Plus, you get the bearing cap support screws and a drain plug when you get any of the new covers that the external braces can't provide. Also, the Ford Racing piece has more webbing than the other designs.

So, considering it all, I think it's a worth it the extra bucks.

Not quite sure what you mean? My OEM cover has a drain plug and the billetflow IRS brace has a hole in it to get to the drain plug

Yours has one very low and one about midway up?

Or just the one about midway up, the FILL hole (not a DRAIN hole)?

As the original poster, I was asking if the differential housing works on our cars. Thanks for the info on the cover, but does anyone know if the housing works?

The housing is the same as the mark VIII and 99-04 Cobra one

The housing is the same and everything is interchangable between the units. But, the 03-04 Cobra ones are different. They are 31 spline for the halfshafts, everybody else (MN-12, Mark VIII, 99-01 Cobra) all have 27. So, while the housings will fit, they aren't a bolt in unless you change the halfshafts too with a 03-04 Cobra IRS center section.
