IMPORTANT NOTE: We realize there is a lot to read here but it’s in everyone’s best interest to read all of the information presented here. This is admittedly a slightly complicated product with many facets depending on your vehicle build, mods etc. We have tried to make this as comprehensive and easy to understand as humanly possible but if we missed something please drop us a line and ask!
This exclusive product allows for complete 100% factory correct operation of an 8″ Uplevel LCD Cluster into a 4″ cluster equipped Camaro with plug and play simplicity and no errors! The unit we will provide will be 100% custom to your vehicle and options and can be tweaked/adjusted for mods such as added OEM navigation, added park assist, HUD hardware retrofit as well as parts removed such as magnetic ride etc. The best part is they are BRAND NEW with warranty.
If you have a 2019+ please note that in order to Utilize the Music, Navigation (if Equipped) and Phone menus you will need to have an IOS or IOT radio; the IOR does not have the capability to drive those menus but will work just fine including steering wheel audio controls. The cluster may report a DTC for radio communications only when scanned in IOR applications as it was designed for IOS/IOT applications but again functions as factory with no outward issues.
Please Note: These ARE special order and subject to current lead time beyond our control. 2017-2018 US spec V8 as well as 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022 and 2023 US Spec V8 are currently on backorder.
Q: How does this work?
A: First figure out your application (E.G. Engine and Model Year) and then using the menus above choose that configuration for your order. Upon delivery (and after installing the required wiring harness if necessary) simply plug the unit in and you’ll be golden; yes it’s really that simple.
Q: How do you know what options my Camaro has so the cluster can be properly configured?
A: From your VIN! If you have added any factory options you think the cluster should display or interact with just put them in the order notes.
Q. I heard you need to add a small plug and play wiring harness for IO5/IO6 equipped vehicles is that true?
A. Yes, these vehicles are missing some of the wiring to drive the cluster; this harness is available from Gen5DIY.com.
Q: Whats the difference between the I4/V6 and V8 units?
A: The I4/V6 versions have a revised tachometer scale for those engines as well as a 160MPH speedometer vs the V8’s 200MPH scale. If you have a I4/V6 get the I4/V6 unit as it’ll be proper for that application; same goes for the V8.
Q: I have a 2017+ LTG and the boost gauge doesn’t move is this normal?
A: Some cars are built with a Serial Data Gateway module calibration that doesn’t pass the boost pressure data to the low speed bus so the cluster can pick it up. We are investigating a work around for this currently.
Q: Can you do this for Export (Metric clusters)?
A: Yes we can supply them and will eventually add them to the drop down menu but for now just email and ask for your specific application and we will get you setup.
Q: Does it HAVE to be the same model year of cluster as my Camaro?
A: If you wish to have 100% OEM functionality AND retain your factory or factory backed extended warranty you MUST choose the same model year cluster as your Camaro. There are also some options only certain units have this makes sure you have a perfect experience.
Q: I have an IOB Radio will this cluster work in my application?
A: Yes with some caveats. It will “work” however you will not see any audio information and if you have an IOB with steering wheel radio/audio controls you will lose those. Most people get this upgrade to use when replacing the IOB radio. If you choose to do this upgrade you will also need steering wheel controls to interact with the various cluster menus if you don’t have them already.
Q: Will I lose any features?
A: No you should not lose any features that you had before other than the IOB steering wheel control situation above.
Q: Will I gain any features?
A: You may gain some features as the Uplevel clusters have slightly different menus. We can also enable things you have added such as indicators for park assist or the Navigation menu if you have added factory navigation. If you have added FACTORY options that your Camaro didn’t have please put what you have added in the notes section.
Q: Can you delete warning indicators for items I may have removed from the Vehicle??
A: Yes we can, this would all be custom and priced as such, contact us for details.
Q: What is the HUD Retrofit Option?
A: This enables the unit to drive a heads up display module. Yes it can be installed after the fact and requires wiring obviously. We do not provide support for this we simply enable the unit to drive the HUD module as factory, wiring, installation etc is up to the end user.
Q: Do I need to send in or do anything with my factory cluster?
A. Nope! But we do recommend keeping it in case you sell your vehicle. The OEM crates these come in are a great place for them!
