AFM :confused: DoD

ok so i have the L99 which obviously has the AFM or DoD. i get the concept and how it works and all, but i wanted to know 1.) is it really needed 2.) would it gain anything if its removed? 3.) ive seen a DoD delete system online but is there a way to deactivate it without uninstalling it or the stupid tap shift method? and lastly im looking for some inexpensive ways to enhance my car performance wise any ideas. I already have a K&N aircharger cold air intake and flomaster american thunder cat-back system

Check into a dyno tune, see if they have a way of deactivating it. Plus once you do remove it(with an aftermarket kit), or tune it, its gonna void any and all warranty you have.

It works. It's seamless. Deactivating it will gain you nothing except a lack of powertrain warranty and a thinner wallet from paying for a tune.

Quickest and cheapest tune up is the fuse pull to reset the fuel octaine tables.About once a month makes a big big difference.
