VM1000 to Garmin G3X / GEA-24 conversion

Hi Jim,
  I did the same mod in my Cozy IV 5 years ago.  The only sensor I reused was my fuel flow sensor.  I used the Flowscan sensor, a Red Cube would not work for some odd reason.   I don’t see why the egt and cylinder head probes wouldn’t work.  
  The installation manual shows all of the config options for the G3X.

A panel upgrade for my Defiant will include replacing two, working VM1000 engine monitors with a Garmin G3X and two GEA-24 Engine/Airframe interfaces.  Has anyone done a similar upgrade?  Does anyone have first-hand knowledge regarding which VM1000 sensors can be connected directly to the GEA-24 with no custom programming of sensor characteristics?

I have the red cube on my G3X install and it has worked perfectly since initial installation.  So if you have the Red Cube, it should work.
