Deerslayer, the total cost of this install is ~$800? Premium cluster, VCMII tool, and that $18 steering wheel switch? Assuming no core.
You can do it for under $700 now total if you have a '13 or '14 with prices like they are now. With the VCMII you can do PATS, AS BUILT and everything. I have helped a couple of people that live in TX where we just used my VCMII so they did the mod for under 500. If you have a '13 or '14 base it literally takes less than an hour from start to finish to do everything. The core, you get reimbursed once you send your cluster back in.

Few more questions... I've re-read this again. I just got my VCM II IDS 86V.
Can you update the softerware to the latest. Mine is 86. I notice here that 90 is available

IDS Download.

Plus or Minus if we download? YOUR THOUGHTS?

Are we able to change the speedo miles to the correct one with the VCM II?


And last question. I have a 2014 base. I want the boss look. If I purchase the Premium cluster and install first.... then later install the BACKCAT faceplate - How hard is it to remove the pointers and installing them in the same location. Do you have to calibrate each gauge?

And Deerslayer - thank you for taking the time to assist all of us.

I lasered my own little plate for my VCM II case.

No need too. Some guys have been running v84 with no problems. If you want the myColor, that is EXACTLY the route I would go. Your speed is automatically callibrated in the firmware on the cluster. No need to do anything. Even when you install a Boss Cluster with a 180 speedo.

Here is the trick for perfect alignment on the needles:

FILL YOUR TANK TO FULL, make sure your engine has been off and completely cool
Remove the needles with two butter knives.
Lay them flat one either side of the needle.
Simultaneously twist them both lifting both sides of the needle and it will pop off. Remove all needles.
Replace the faceplate with the BCC faceplate
Leave the clear bezel OFF and place the cluster into position on the dash and plug the in the cluster
Turn your key to the ON position and wait a few seconds
VERY LIGHTLY barely press the needles into postion - gas full / tach 0 /mph 0 / temp C
Turn ignition off
Remove the cluster and now press the needle all the way on
DONE
If anyone needs help getting walked through the IDS process with doing your PATS, install and or AS BUILT, i will give you my cell and walk you through it over the phone as you do it.

So does all of the 2013 and 2014 GT Premium cars have track apps? I'm interested in doing this swap and found the VIN from a 14 GT premium with auto to plug in to the ABR link that was provided but the ebay auction for the car didn't say anything specific about track apps. Thanks

Nice. Make sure when you install the IDS software, install the "PATCH" that is on the same disc.

Hey guys, new to the forums, been following this thread for awhile and decided to jump in before I attempt this. I'm ready to order a brand new cluster since I can't locate a 2014 take off anywhere. I have the AS BUILT data thanks to Deerslayer, I'm trying to decide if I should purchase the IDS tool and do flashing or just bring it to the dealer along with as built data and have them do it for me. Any tips?

The VCM 2 is the way to go. Do it yourself. I'll be installing mine this weekend. Got the cluster and vcm2. Can't wait to see how it goes.

Cool man, good luck with yours. Let us know how complicated it is flashing the vehicle and the software required other than the tool if you can, It's the only thing holding me back from going all in. Thanks again.

I heard the VCMII tools are $99 now on alibaba! wow, I paid TWICE that and that was a bargain. They have dropped to $162 on the site I bought mine. The IDS software is included with the one I bought from carsets. It took less than a week to get it from when I bought it.

Alastor... it was simple to put premium cluster into 14 gt base.. I just did mine in 1 hour.. and didn't have to call deerslayer. .. do it yourself. Much better experience and you will have the VCM tool to keep. Good luck
