Default MFA/FIS Cluster Install.

Howdy folks,

I've been thinking of purchasing an MFA or FIS cluster and temp sensor, but the whole installation process is way too much for my very limited wrenching skills, so before I do I'm wondering if anyone in Oregon/ the Portland area knows how to properly install one in an 03 Jetta?

Rich and Marcel at Fix'Um Haus can do it, as can Old Poopie (Justin). Of course the problem isn't the installation but getting it set up with your car with the SKC requires Vag-Tacho software to adapt the "new" cluster to your car and adjust the mileage, and I'm not sure if either of those guys have it.

If you come to the GTG in Portland on Saturday (Aug 4th) I can bring my vagtacho and get your pin/skc for you, for later installation.

Thanks for the information guys! I'm pretty bummed I have plans I can't get out of that day so I can't make it out to the GTG this weekend. Is the vag-tacho software fairly expensive and or hard to get?

The cable and software aren't too bad. The software is shareware, and the cable is the only thing you really need to buy. When I bought mine, i just searched ebay.

here's a link to a search: http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_nkw=...+COM&_osacat=0

I think i paid approx $25 and that was free shipping from China. Of course it takes like 2-3 weeks to receive it, but it works well.
