There is a difference between a hud windshield and a non hud, however I am going to respectfully disagree with your statement that it is a "no go". I have personally swapped in a hud from a 1990 pontiac turbo grand prix into a 1988 grand prix se 5 speed which did not come with hud and it worked fine. It is a little dim during the day, but if you crank the brightness and don't hook up the auto dimming wire which dims it when the headlights are on, it works fine.

My friend lorenzo gpse3400 over on 60degreev6 has done the same thing as have 2 of my other friends. They work fine and I plan to do the same thing with my 2010 camaro.

I will let you know how it works once I can get a unit from GM and the wiring!
