Cole, the part you're getting from Carey will fix the problem.
My 2013 VS came with the VDO sender Luis mentioned, and it's been trouble free.
When you do get the new sender, it'll be easier to install with a half tank of gas or less. When the tank is topped up, the fuel level is above the sender mounting hole.
Over the years, VS used various sources for many of its parts (some better, some worse), depending on what was available at the time of each build. Most of the later builds I've seen use the VDO-branded sender, and like Gordon, I haven't heard of any problems.
I'd be willing to bet, though, that VS never installed the $250 version of the sender.
