    Um. I'm pretty sure the cts-v cluster is sitting in my backseat from when I did the swap, then had to change it back. Pretty sure that's action.

    Re: Swapping bits between CTS years (instrument panel, seats, ect), and where to sour

    thanks for that tip on looking for a GM tech-2, just got off the phone with both an engine tuning guy, and then a legit GM tech 2 at a nearby dealer

    the tuning guy pointed me to the right dealer to do it, and informed me about the magical tech2-web machine that can modify almost anything about any GM car, he described it as "menus of sub menus of sub menus of stuff", and most techs just flash the most upgraded GM recommended code and never do anything more ambitious.

    the service guy at the GM place (called "imperial chevrolet", in mendon massachusetts) basically said they can do almost anything programming wise to my car for $100, but that's just the base price. depending on the complexity of the job it could be more.
    he also cautioned that, sometimes, parts that came out of wrecked or just other cars simply will not be programmable to the other car. He's seen it happen a few times but it's not a guarantee of failure.

    at the very least when i end up getting a cts (which will be around november 20th) i'll be able to include information about dealer reprogramming in my various guides and adventures thereof.

    EDIT:
    Um. I'm pretty sure the cts-v cluster is sitting in my backseat from when I did the swap, then had to change it back. Pretty sure that's action.
    and as for your troubles, take heart! try calling around service places and asking about reflashing, it could fix your problems
