AFM Delete, then turn back on?

I looked but never found an exact answer I wanted, I hate, hate the AFM , DOD in my 13' 2SS. It's very annoying and sounds horrible. I was wondering, is there a way to delete it, and if I have to take it to the shop, able to turn it back on so they can't say my warranty is gone if everything is back to normal. Or is what I'm asking even possible to do? Also, if I delete AFM, will I need a tune? Or will the car still perform as normal, and will it throw a check engine light?

You can tune it out, but that will void your warranty. If you want to turn it off without voiding your warranty, I would look at the range AFM disable. You can plug it in and it disables the AFM. Take it out when you go in for service and you are good to go...

Tune is the best option but consider your warranty void at that point. With that said I wound never consider a tune just to disable AFM.

The Range device is a great option as well, even with it's quirks. And Range allows you to keep your warranty.

You can also drive using your tap shifters, AFM will be off while in tap.
