1. I think you mean AFM - Active Fuel Management, and yes you can shut that off - Basically a tune is what you want it to be, completely change the dynamics of the car with programming - software only - from the sparks to the transmission, shift points etc. It is really down to you preference and if you have or want any aftermarket mods.
2. As for HP - no not a major impact without any other supporting mods - CAI, headers, catback etc.
3. Yes - all programming
4. Not sure what you mean, but there is a 'range' device that plugs into the ODB to disable AFM, or you can get a tuner like the SCT, and a custom tune - talk to TORQ in Mirimar, Janetty etc, quite a few chaps around
One word of caution - if you value the warranty don't tune. My warranty is long gone!
IMHO - i wouldn't tune unless you were adding aftermarket parts like cat backs, CAI etc, you will not see any real gains,
GET-TORQ custom CAM 223/243 LSA113, Full LS3 conversion, 3200 stall Multi-Disk TC from Circle-D, B&M Supercooler to cool that tranny down....1 7/8" Kooks Headers and High flowCats. MACH XL Catbacks. Eibach springs, R2C Performance CAI, powdercoated calipers, Footwell lighting in tune with dome lights, tints, ABL Lighting, ACS T3 ports and ACS Eagle T3 triple LED lighting kit. Heritage grill, Hex vents, ZL1 rockers, ZL1 Diffuser, Quad tips...the list keeps getting longer - whats next??
