i was wondering 1 if you can get away by just replacing the afm lifters to lets say the ls7 lifters and it be ok for a non dod/afm cam or would that just screw up everything in your system?. 2 are the afm friendly cams a good choice and give me good power if i don't have the money to go all the way? and 3 does anyone know of some companies besides TSP, livernoise, and lingenfelter to purchase a afm/dod delete kit?
I would do it more for the sound than anything if it didn't void my warranty. With the aftermarket exhaust I have, I can hear every time the AFM kicks in and out. The noise bothers me, but most people who ride with me don't even notice it. When I drive in manual mode I don't hear it, so apparently the AFM isn't active in manual mode. I'm assuming this is common knowledge.
You can't fool the dealership software. They know if anything was changed no matter what you try to do. You can restore the original software in the EMC but can not reset the flash bit that is changed by one diget every time it is connected to something other than the GM network. That number is called the "check sum" and only stored in the GM database with VIN number.
