Default EVIC overhead console upgrade

Has anyone upgraded their standard OTIS overhead console to an EVIC overhead console on the newer 06-08 model Rams? Any issues with MPG, DTE calibration? Will a CTD module work on a Hemi?

Default RE: EVIC overhead console upgrade

I did, Just plugged it in.

I think it is nothing more then a display. When I hooked mine up it had the same numbers on it. All of that info is stored in the computer.

I only did it for the homelink buttons. Now I do not need to keep my opener in the truck.

Is anyone able to provide detail (part #'s, etc.) to do this? Does the Temp gauge also work? I am looking to upgrade mine, and I am interested in the process.

I think whoever said it worked might have just had a better OTIS, I've tried a few varying years, the temp display never comes up but everything else works great. Wish I could find one that works because you can program stuff with it (door locks, flash, horn, maint reminder, etc. from the EVIC itself).
