After loads of hard work and a few cuts on hands, I finally got EVIC cluster working in my 08 Charger SXT with full steering wheel controls.

YES IT IS POSSIBLE AND YES IT CAN BE DONE!

Here are the stuff you will need:
1. EVIC cluster of the same year of your car, or newer. For example, 06~07 can use 06~07 cluster. 08~10 can use 08~10 cluster. Challenger clusters work perfectly in our Chargers.
2. Steering Wheel Controls. They can be found on eBay.
3. New steering wheel harness that connects the switches
4. overhead console with homelink module(for compass to work)
5. Depends on conditions, you might need a new Steering Control Module(if your car has no ESP)

You will need to find one to program your TIPM to enable the features. And you need one to match up the mileage on your cluster. After Hour Mopar Performance can do both. Jon has some amazing skills.


Well here are the results:

Just added homelink overhead console. Now the compass functions perfectly. My BIG project is finally done!

Great project props to you! Always wanted the more advanced speedo. As well as that 0-60 timer such a cool feature. And steering wheel controls. It's the little things that can make your driving experience so much better. Also like the carbon fiber on the steering wheel nice touch

And since our thermometers run at a lower temperature would be nice to always see that thing way to the left haha

Been having fun after the upgrade. Now it feels like

A WHOLE NEW CAR

All the performance pages functions perfectly, 0-60, quarter miles, G-force and etc. Being able to get real time MPG rating rocks as well. It just completely changed the driving experience!! Honestly, I am falling in love with driving my car again. Oh the passion and excitement.

My car also has the factory alarm enabled. So many new features to play with, I am like a kid in a candy store right now.:biggrinjester:


As for your concerns about the engine temp gauge. The digital meter in the EVIC shows it is around 194F. The analog gauge shows pass the 170F mark.

I am making the harness to install the homelink module to get the compass working later.

Programming the TIPM and EVIC is so worth it. Enabling the factory alarm alone worth a hefty amount of money.

Still in the process of installing the homelink. From the looks of it this requires quite some soldering and work. I will report back when everything is done.

Homelink installed. The wiring requires taking off A-pillar. Be careful since the stud-ball mount can be broken easily. The homelink has 6 wires, however only pin1 to pin 4 are needed for homelink to function.

Now I have functional homelink module with compass. My project of adding full EVIC to my V6 has finally been accomplished. Feels damn good.

I spent 150 on cluster, 50 on overhead console. Programing cost varies on how many features you want. I did the installation myself. I already had steering wheel controls so you may need to purchase that as well.

Hi
Awesome work! congrats!

When you say 'You will need to find one to program your TIPM to enable the features. And you need one to match up the mileage on your cluster' you mean no official customer service will do that?
