Yes but you will have to modify that pannel. It will have to bolt to the engine bay side and you will have to cut out the holes for the heater hoses. There's a few theads out there with pics on how people have retained heat while deleting the AC.

I'm running the same plate and did like he said, bolted it up from the engine bay side, cut the 2 holes out for the hoses, don't forget to drill the smaller hole for the vacuum hose to use the controls
