global a ! = commodore ve.
I do recall a Grand Prix hack mod where you,could retrofit a hud to an otherwise non-hud-optioned car... maybe 1997-2002 era, anyone remember that?
The reason that worked is because the circuits and computer controllers were NOT retooled and/or totally incompatible with the mating car. Like a 99 gp gtp fully loaded with hud totalled out could donate dash and components necessary to install into a virgin dash. same car basically, same generation hardware.
Same thing with the grand prix digital dic conversion, which I can proudly claim I successfully implemented. However, looking back, wow, all that work done to gain a "digital engine oil life digital percentage remaining monitor" ... lol.
Some may argue that my interior conversion to my g8 is similar... alas, I took it as far as I wanted to and am happy with the interior as she sits.
Anyways, I digress.
The platform incompatibilies (and probably steering wheel shaft compatibility also) is what you're up against.
To my understanding, thats the challenge to overcome here, since you're talking the VE to the VF ,different generation.
Till then, my gxp wheel and console mounted bumpstick for manual fits the bill for me.
