We need a dislike button!
Is the GT350 cluster plug & play, besides needing the correct mileage added?
It’d probably be similar to the same process as the digital gauge swap. Not sure though. I didn’t look into it. Didn’t seem worth it to me just to get a shift light and a digital speedometer.
  • Compressing the speedometer sweep to add the 160-200 range didn't make sense for me going around town in a daily driver.
  • An 8500RPM tach on a car that’s 6500 seemed weird.
  • I’d lose the MyColor, which while minor, I like all my interior lights being the same color (like on cars of yesteryear)and since the buttons and controls are ice blue, MyColor lets me set my gauges to match.
  • And there’s cost. I didn’t want to spend $400 on a used gauge cluster, AND pay someone to change the odometer, especially after just paying $500 to add the performance pack gauges to my car (it’s a non-PP model.)
Spending $50-100 to hack this together seemed better for me. Plus, I get multi-colored shift lights; the GT350’s are a single color. Win-win!

Look around on the forum or on YouTube. I’m sure there’s someone who swapped in the GT350 cluster and described how to do it.

So, I know I said that this is for cars with the Adaptive Cruise Control, but...that's only because it includes the HUD. If you don't have that already, you can buy the new defroster grille and HUD module for less than $200. Don't think there's anything else needed, but I've been wrong before.

Defroster Grille
HR3Z-63044E82-AA

HUD Module
FR3Z-19G468-A

Also, and probably more importantly, I've uploaded the Arduino code to GitHub. https://github.com/JMPhotos/OBDII-HUD/tree/master/1. Arduino
I'm traveling for the rest of this month, so it'll be sometime afterwards before I can get the code for the app up there, since it's on a computer I don't have with me. However, I provided an alternative option that works too. It's just not as gucci as mine.

The initial posts have been updated to reflect.

This is awesome! Finally someone that took on the challenge. Unfortunately I'm way too lazy to do it lol.

Great project and write up! I'm a little confused though, does this use the HUD module or did you make your own with new LED's? If I wanted to recreate this can I just buy the grille, HUD module and arduino and wire it up?

And he says "I’m not great when it comes to electrical engineering," :)

Excellent idea. My Bullitt has the shift warning on the dash with the tone but you can't hear that at all over the exhaust so it's pretty useless for avoiding the rev limiter and keeping your eyes on the road.
