Default Led cluster question

If I only change the turn signals in the cluster to led will I get hyperflashing?

I've been looking at doing something similar. Would you be willing to share photos and maybe a picture of the LEDs so I at least know what won't work that well? I imagine part of the issue is that the "light pipes" in the cluster are designed with the 360 degree illumination of an incandescent bulb in mind. Depending on where the LEDs are pointing, you'd get hot spots and dim spots.

I used these bulbs below. In pictures it came out perfect and bright but in real life it's only a tiny bit brighter then the old bulbs. at 0-1k and at 7k it's brighter that's where the hot spots are. The speedo was balanced but still only as bright as the regular bulb. The top of the fuel gauge has a hot spot and the temp gauge seems like it's almost slightly dimmer the the stock bulbs. The clock is really bright and doesn't dim anymore when the when the headlights are on. I also changed the turn signals and high beam bulbs. They are really bright.

During the day when the lights on full brightness I can't see the lights from the main section. everyone in the forums have the 99+ with the 74 bulbs in pictures they are bright and can be seen durning the day. I have a v4 cluster the 194 are my main bulbs which are supposed to brighter but they suck.

74 LED Bulb - 3 SMD LED - Miniature Wedge Base | Super Bright LEDs

194 LED Bulb - 5 LED - Miniature Wedge Base | Super Bright LEDs

I used green LEDs from Amazon for my cluster. Came out decent.

In real life it's as bright as the temp gauge and the temp gauge looks dimmer. This is full brightness
