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 complicated product/service with many facets depending on your vehicle build, mods, warranty status 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 ship in service allows for complete 100% factory correct operation of an 8″ Uplevel LCD Cluster into a 4″ cluster equipped Camaro with plug and play simplicity! This service is 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. This service when done in the recommended manner (matching vehicle year/content) is 100% warranty compliant. If you still have factory warranty or dont want the hassle of trying to find the proper salvage unit you can click HERE to get to our complete kit that includes a brand new unit with full warranty and warranty compliance.
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 bus wiring or capability to drive those menus.
Q: How does this work?
A: First figure out your application (E.G. Engine and Model Year) and using the parts list linked below you source the appropriate cluster (new or used). If you wish to have 100% OEM functionality AND retain your factory or factory backed extended warranty you MUST purchase the kit item and have us supply the proper new unit. You then place an order (please pay attention to the cluster condition option(s)!) and follow the shipping instructions provided to send the cluster you sourced into us for programming.. Upon return (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: 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 and 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.
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 use 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. Yes it can be installed after the fact and requires wiring obviously.
Q: What is the Odometer Lock Option?
A: The Odometer lock option removes the odometer hard lock from a cluster that has been tampered with or improperly installed (Odometer Showing ——).
Q: Do I need to send in my factory cluster?
A. No, we only need you to send the Uplevel cluster you are sourcing (if you are choosing to supply it)
