We have a 2013 1SS 1LE, and I do not have the oil temp and pressure on my DIC, or do I and just not know how to get to it. I have read the manual and have not been able to figure it out, so I assume it must be a 2SS thing. Can anyone set me straight?

The oil temp and pressure are only on the 2014+.

Thanks! Does the ZL1 have additional information to the SS cars?

Not sure but my guess is the ZL1 has the same DIC as the SS.

No my DIC is bigger... Lol. I had to anyways, the ZL1 has a couple performance gauges and what not. So what does this cluster look like on the back end. Does it fit in the Dash of a 13?

This makes me a bit angry. sure hope there is a way to retrofit it into a 13.
That was one of the things I hated about this car vs Mustang.
they had a far superior computer.

Saw someone put a shirt(black) or something in front of the car. Maybe had someone stand in front of the car. Took a pretty good pic.

Actually the ZL1 has most of these features (Lap Timer, Coolent Temp, G-meter, etc) built into the DIC from 2012, but it was still using the low resolution, monochrome display.

I know that the ZL1 HUD has a performance style shift light on the HUD page that has the G-meter. It has two lights that move closer together as you approach redline.

If you have a '10-'12 LS/LT/SS upgrading to a '14 LS/LT/SS is worth it if you like the refresh exterior, the HUD, and recaro seats are great options.

Jumping from a '12-13 ZL1 to a '14 ZL1 isn't wrote it in my opinion unless you specifically want tail lights, upgraded HUD and recaro seat option.

Check this out. I just found this today. Did anyone else know the color HUD had a built in shift light or sorts?

About the only thing I run in the info area is speed. COuld care less if 3d or color it does what it needs to do. HUD would be cool, but dont want to tear my dash apart for something like that

I know the 1SS will have a monochromatic driver information center but does it have all the animation as the color one but just in black and white? I also know the 1SS does not offer HUD.

they didn't really add much, huh?

what i'd REALLY like to see is the same DIC that's in the Cruze. that thing has all kinds of awesomeness; like a speedo, MPG, and fuel remaining all on one screen. i was given a Cruze as a loaner while my Camaro was getting a leak fixed, and i was astounded at all the information that tiny screen gave me all at once.
