Ported Throttle Body

I installed my ported throttle body; Is it possible for that to help avoid the AFM kicking in because it is a lot better than it was when I had my unported throttle on. Also, it seems much more responsive/faster. Would the 10+ HP help that much? (also have a CAI + removed my mufflers)

Ported TB will not help in avoiding AFM from kicking in. A ported TB may get you 2 to 4 hp at max (debatelable). A ported TB is only going to give you better throttle response. Thats it. It wont give you any ponies or mitigate AFM from kicking in.

If you want to get rid of AFM you will be looking at getting a tune...which means voided warranty.

Should be getting about 8-10 hp with the PTB.

Says who?

You do realize that NONE of the ported TB's actually increase the size of the throat. They merely clean up the mouth. The CNC one does make pretty swirls all over the mouth which is suppose to help with throttle response.

All I know is, I could really feel a big difference in my butt dyno. My permagrin was much bigger. Who cares to argue the stats when you have that?

Just installed mine very recently but haven't tested it yet... it's still sleeping for the winter unfortunately... but can't wait to feel the difference in throttle response like everyone says anyways..

I thought 2011 and below have the ability to flash the tune back to normal bc the technology is not on the 10s and 11s to see of if was tuned. So he may be ok!

Not true, can be found on snoopes.com.

But in all seriousness, not true on the SS. Only the V6 (which the poster has and does not have AFM) does not have a flash counter. So yes it can be flashed back but it will still be detected.

You mys well do tune and headers and forget about the warranty.. even now with the few bolts ons you have done if they find a problem and they say it's related to your cold air intake or throttle body ,then your warranty won't work anyways...
Honestly the warranty is over rated , you'll never use the powertrain warranty anyways.....

Im not sure why everyone is so worried about the warrenty i have my car tuned. I bring mine in to the dealer tuned and they know its tuned and can care less. I guess its all about the dealer most dealer should under stand we buy these cars to mod.

Below his avatar he states that he has a L99. Therefore, he would have AFM.

Once you get a tune you void warranty. Yes, you can bring it back to stock, but the dealership will still be able to see this information and know that you have tuned your vehicle. So basically, if you are not ready to void your powertrain warranty then don't tune because you won't be getting around it.

You can always get yourself some high flow cats. Added power and deeper exhaust note. However, if you ever plan on going with headers in the near future this will be a waste of money.
