Yes it will. If you have the auto you will need to cut a notch for the extra hose at right front.

Everyone says that you have to cut it. But I've yet to see how it looks on an auto.

Roughly. I'd use a corner of the wrap then wrap the mirror. Cut it at about an inch so it won't come up. Heat gun and some glue will seal it off nice and right

I cut a piece a few inches bigger then needed , heated it up got it now I wanted and then cut extra off . Just leave enough to go around the edges. I didn't use glue like he said . But it's not a bad idea at all. I've had mine a month or so now and no problems at all

I'm in the same boat. $100 for the look it should have came with from factory. $6 for a unique look that looks factory, yet it isn't a smooth painted look because its fake carbon fiber

I heard that as well. I bought one about 4 months ago and it just fit perfect on my V6 2013 Auto. I did not see any interference with any hose. I had to make sure it included the oil filer tube spacer and it did.

It stays on because of the oil filer cap and tube on the drivers side, and there are two rubber prongs on the passenger side that poke into indents for them. I cant take a picture till the weekend, the car is put away for the winter in storage.

Hi WL, I would think so. Here is where I got it and they list it for 11-13, and you can see in the photo the cut out for hoses and stuff is there already. I could see if someone did not get the oil fill tube spacer, it would sit lower and need cut out.

Mustang V6 Engine Cover Kit

How ever, note this part: If you have an aftermarket Cold Air Kit (CAI), minor trimming of the intake cover may be required to clear the Crankcase Vent Tube.

I think it would make a cool deck lid cover too!
I just don't want to cover my stripes.

Here's an idea, if you can, put it over your stripes.

So as long as its a stock "CAI" it'll be fine. But when you go aftermarket that's when it gets to the trimming part. Now I'm a fan again

I could put it over the stripes but I like the look of them going all the way down the back .
