    ive been doing a lot of research on an AFM delete and i keep getting more and more confused. some people say you need parts to do the delete, others say you dont. so my question is, do i need to get parts or can i just tune it out? is there any power difference in doing it as well? i also would...
  2. Vortec 5300 5.3L V8
    I just bought a 2007 Silverado with 5.3 engine. Flowmaster exhaust sound great when she starts up. This can't be 4 cylinders!! Wondering if my engine needs or has this AFM thing I've been reading about?? How can I tell if I need/have this issue? THX
  3. EcoTec 5.3L V8
    I recently purchased a 2014 5.3 sierra with AFM. I bought a range afm plug in delete and it keeps the truck out of v4 as it says it will.

  7. EcoTec 5.3L V8
    Have a 2015 5.3 lifter is broken on #4 cylinder probably because of afm. I do have a diablosport with Lew tunes and afm disabled.
