Hi,
I'd like to do a mention this Wi-Fi + BT adapter. In case someone is thinking about buying it, it works out of the box with a BCM94360CD card. I guess it's because it's dual band I get much more signals than using my older TP-link.
I don't know what else what to test, but both Wi-Fi and BT seems to work as expected, I also tried Airdrop and it works.

I bought it on aliexpress, but it's also available on amazon:

I had a problem with the shipment, but the guys from the store where extremely helpful and it finally arrived later than expected, but I'm more than happy with the purchase.

(for some reason the amazon version comes WITHOUT the card)

Thanks for the information. I searched on Amazon and found an 802.11 AC mini-PCIe card from Fenvi that should go with the bare PCIe card, although it only looks like it can only use two of the four antennas provided on the PCIe card - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00JY6X9HM/?tag=tonymacx86com-20

Here is a Fenvi PCIe card with the mini-PCIe card included and it contains three antennas -

After looking at the hi-res picture of the mini-PCIe card, I've tried to track that particular part down on Amazon, but I haven't found it yet. I suspect it's an EU-only part, or it hasn't received FCC approval yet for Fenvi to sell here yet. I'll look and see if I can find it available anywhere else.

I don't plan to update to Sierra anytime soon, but if I find time I will try to do a clean installation in another hardrive

I just wanted to mention that I have the Fenvi FV4360 (bought on amazon for 59.99) which includes wifi and bluetooth and that it works perfectly on macOS Sierra. I did have to use the inject all USB kext and then customize my own SSDT in order to enable the USB header on my motherboard to work with the bluetooth on the wifi card (the bluetooth connects to USB header on motherboard to work). However, Wifi was plug and play.

Other than that, it has been great. Wifi speeds are very fast. Apple keyboard, trackpad, handoff, universal clipboard work perfectly (just remember to sign out of Mac iCloud and sign back in to enable after installing card).

Hey.. I just purchased this card for use with Sierra, and I can't get it to boot. I tried USB injection, but I get this error - "ARPT: 1.880226: Airport_Brcm43XX::Start: Failed.

Do you have any suggestions? I have very limited knowledge of customized SSDT's. I've never had to do that. Is that going to be necessary for just WiFi?

Thanks
