AFM (active fuel management) is on the SS 8cyl only. It reduces the L99 V8 engine from 8 to 4 clyinders. It can be disabled with a tune, but voids the factory warranty. Many say it sounds awful with aftermarket exhaust installed unless you do a tune.

The factory scared alot of people about warrenties.I've had 1 guy warrent some heating stuff.He rolled in with a cammed/supercharges 2010 Camaro and they DID NOT void his warrenty.The voided warrenty is mostly from blown motor's caused by improper tunes which you see alot of nowadays.In the last 10 years we've never had a engine failure caused by tuning.

Ya, I should have said the DRIVE TRAIN WARRANTY. The rest of the car is covered. My dealer confirmed this and advised it's not up to the individual dealer. Dealers submit warranty repairs to GM for approval. GM will pull up your vin and they can tell if a tune was ever done. Per my dealer any engine, trans, rearend problem may be denied. Just what I was told.

That is correct.If you pull in with a detenated piston and they see the computer was touched =denied. This all came from the tuning company's.There are so many hack tunes out there from people that should never/ever touch a tuning software.

Here is something else they will probly do in the future.Deny claims if headers or a cold air intake is installed on the car because it affects the factory tune and can damage the motor.

In the last 10 years I've probly seen 1 factory motor blow that was 100% stock.

I fully insulated my rear trunk compartment so I hope that's enough. I guess I could try my Magnaflows out and go back to stock if necessary.
Drone is not bad at all, so when i was going to get my exhaust done it was the thing that worried me the most.

In my case, no tuning out the AFM necessary
