Wifi works natively (no fixes), but bluetooth may require an SSDT for the USB board socket to work.

If you buy the FV-T919 card you don't need an SSDT. It's natively supported because it's an iMac card. macOS sees it as such.

The Bluetooth USB power to motherboard header/port? Sometimes these internal USB headers need proper assignment 255 or the Bluetooth doesn’t work.

If this card doesn’t have or need the USB power for Bluetooth then it’s not a potential issue. This issue does come up with WiFi Bluetooth combo cards that require a USB header for the Bluetooth power supply. Some systems or configs are fine but others may need SSDT fix.
