It is pretty simple and straight forward. The hardest part of the entire install was taking the front bumper off, but after that it was all easy.

Sure can. Here it is: http://www.theretrofitsource.com/pro...oducts_id=3954
You'll need to be sure it's H9 bulbs and H13 harness to work.

Those two wires should be connected to the wiring for the high beam solenoid.

Can you tell me which wire is the high beam solenoid( I see two red wires and one black wire that is connected to the bulb itself,see this picture below) ? And if I connect those to high beam solenoid ,where does the other end connector go in order to power up the high beam solenoid ?I don't see anything on the relay harness would fit that.please walk me through this .

The bulb wires will be the round connectors coming out of the grommet, one red and one blue (I think). The other two should be the high beam. One should be ground and the other should be the high beam wire.

The more I think about it I think I t-tap the hi-beam wire into the factory harness. I'm about positive that's how I did it. I'm not home right now or I would tell you for sure. Ill be back home this weekend and ill be able to look at my car and tell. I hope this helps.

I'm confused after these past few post.. Considering you must use H9 Bulbs in the Eagle Eyes yet you need the H13 Harness for Hi/Low Function correct? What high beam solenoid are we speaking of? Is it not the same simple plug in play setting up the HIDS?

Basically the HID projectors work is that put out light through the whole projector lens. When the low beams are on there is a piece of metal that covers up the top part of the beam and thus preventing the blinding of oncoming traffic. When you turn your high beams on there is a solenoid in the projector that moves the metal shield out of the way to let the light at the top of the projector show.

Check out this video. This is a Morimoto projector but the eagle eye should work in the same way. LOVE my morimoto projectors! And, TRS by far the best place to get HID stuff.

After seeing the video, I had no clue the wire coming out of the projector. I know how that connects to the harness Ill have my eagle eyes tomorrow so Ill see it in person! Thanks for the vid.

Caverman nailed it on the head. You need the H13 harness because the factory harness in your camaro is H13. Some people think HID's are bright enough and chose not to wire up the high beams. But if you chose to do so its really simple. Ill be able to explain better once I get back home this weekend and get to my car.
