You got it if you have an auto trans.(L99) The LS3 (M6 manual trans.) does not have AFM

Just get you a Range V8, will disable your AFM, not affect your warranty, not traceable, unplug it when you want. just do a search for it on the forumns.

Best purchase I've ever made for my Camaro. I actually got better gas mileage with the Range V8 plugged in. Make sure you use the camaro5 discount code. Also look up the thread here on the forums for more info on it.. There tons of info in that thread

the range doesn't mess with your tune, it can be unplugged anytime and afm will be back on. Whats happens when something goes wrong with your car and you did use predator and the dealership plug in and sees no afm.

I could understand it if you had headers or other mods, but to loose your warranty just to disable AFM doesn't make sense. when you can spend $185 for the plug in and keep your warranty and you have a brand new car not even broke it yet,,,,

yeah thats true but my question is if lets say i switch AFM off with the predator and (god forbid) something goes wrong and before i bring it back to the dealer i turn the AFM back on can they still tell it was ever turned off? if thats the case than im 100% going to get the Range when the motor is broken in.

IMO tune your car. I did and I LOVE it! Totally different car. You will lose a bit on mpg but totally worth it.
