Hey guys I bought my 2012 Mustang GT last November b/c I like the look better than the 2013, but I would love to have track apps and the new gauge cluster. Does anyone know if it is even possible to take a gauge cluster thats in the 2013 mustang and put it a 2011-12 Mus'tang. Someone told me that the the 2011-12 mustang has all the necessary sensors it just isn't set up with the 4" screen.

well, what deos the traction control system use to know that the car has lost traction, or the ABS system use to know it needs to go into ABS mode? I htink all the sensors are there and have been there for at least the last 2 generations. I've got a 0-60 and quarter mile mode on my aeroforce gauge that gets it's info from the OBDII port. I guess the only thing that might be missing is a lateral G-force reading?
Someone asked the Ford reps tonight at the MOCSEM meeting about the track app in earlier Mustangs and they said "can't do it, too many sensors you would have to add". I can't remember if the question was specific to any one year or series though (like 2005-09 or 2010 or 2011-12)
I would bet they're built into the cluster itself.
+1. Look at the size of a Wiimote/DualShock3 video game controller. The gyro sensors needed for those kinds of measurements do not take up much room at all, and are inexpensive enough that I would think they could be bundled in.
