Sierra upgrade possible on a MBP mid 2009

Texto:

I have a customer with a:
 
Apple MacBook Pro "Core 2 Duo" 2.8 15" (SD) Specs
 
Identifiers: Mid-2009 15" - MB986LL/A - MacBookPro5,3 - A1286 - 2325*
 
It has a 64 bit Architecture and therefore should be able to take Sierra.
 
But then so does my early 2009 MacPro and I had to do a firmware hack to make it think it was a 2010 before I could install.
 
Does anyone know how to get it to install, or if it will?
 
UPDATE
 
The system should run on this machine so I'm thinking of duplicating her hard drive onto another drive. Put that drive onto a newer machine, install Sierra then swap the drives and see if it runs?
 
UPDATE 10/1/16
 
Tried to start up from an external SSD drive with Sierra on in and got the circle with a bar on it. So it's a no go unless I can either do a firmware upgrade or possibly change the plist.

UPDATE 7/11/17
This may be the way to do it:

'''UPDATE 9/29/16'''
After testing for a few days using an external with Sierra and finding no problems, I went ahead and installed without issue on my MacPro. Using a Logitech QuickCam Vision Pro Webcam w/ Mic camera and microphone. The camera does not do well in low light and is not near the quality of an iSight. Siri runs fine with it and I can now send messages verbally to anyone in my address book.
I will be trying an install on a 64 bit early 2009 MacBook Pro this weekend.

But then so does my early 2009 MacPro and I had to do a firmware hack to make it think it was a 2010 before I could install.
