Arrow does the LS3 have Active Fuel Management? (Manual Trans)

ive been looking all over the place, and it seems like they only advertise that the Auto has Active Fuel Management, i am ordering a Camaro SS w/ the LS3 stick. i wanna know if it will run on 4 cylinders in traffic/ while cruising. this may sway my decision between auto and stick....
:help :

I don't think the manual will have the AFM.

nope, the LS3 definitely does not have AFM. I imagine that would be a programming nightmare with the driver in full control of the gears.

To be clear.

AFM is only available on the Auto (L99). And the Camaro will not have the gas guzzler tax.

Oh for heavens sake. The fact that the LS3 will not have Active Fuel Management (AFM) was stated up fornt in all the initial inforamtion releases from GM.

I am trying to be nice here, but dayum, this horse has been beaten to death.

That's how my dealer treated me, I gave him a $500 check (actully ordered for my son who is in Iraq), he gave me my Pre-Order WorkBench print out and a recipt for my $500. But then again I purchased 6 vette's from him so he better not have asked for anything more.

You don't need to do all this until the car actually comes in.

AFM requires the torque converter of an automatic in order to operate smoothly. Otherwise it would be a much harsher engagement.

Manuels always get better gas mileage than auto. Look at the corvette base model. same engine? yes. rated at 26 mpg on highway. thats what really changed my decision on the auto. originally I had the auto, but naw man, it want look right with that big engine.
ordered 10-20-08 black ss hurst short throw, sunroof (so the gals can hang out)

Get the manual and drive economically when not out to tear up the town. You can very easily get great mileage out of just about any engine with a manual transmission.
