Unlocking Hidden Driver Cluster Menus

I met a guy on discord who's able to unlock hidden driver menus for GM vehicles, especially 9th gen malibus, remotely. It does require that you have a certain type of OBD2 plug-in. I didn't have one, so he recommended I buy this from Amazon.

He's able to unlock performance and other menus like engine boost, performance lap timers, etc with this tool and it's pretty neat. Some of the information is dependent on whether your car has readouts for certain information, like for my car I don't have an oil temp readout so the performance screen shows oil temp, but since I don't have any data for that it just shows -40. Some of this stuff will actually be really useful for me as I build the car and can monitor more of this info through the driver cluster. If yall want to talk to him and see what he can do (it is dependent on the spec of your car), I've put his contact info below.

I'm interested in this also. If it is hidden as a menu why not reveal it? When I saw that picture of the -12 I didn't understand but here is a nice website discussing boost. Makes great points about grandpa's foolish old saying no replacement for displacement. There sure is. Grandpa's old V8 mustered about 220 horsepower and 0-60 in 10 seconds because it had chump engineering. Toss in that heavy big engine and huge transmission driveshaft and differential you got yourself dump truck bogged down clown car. Way more zippy having the aluminum 2.0 Turbo in a light car zipping around turns. Understanding Turbo Boost
