    I don't understand what the problem is. People have given you a few options already in this thread. Get a Diablosport Predator (check your local Craigslist for a used [returned to stock tune] one), or have a local tuner (or someone with HPT/EFILive) turn it off for you. If you find the right tuner, maybe they'll give you a break and only charge you to turn AFM off.

    You can quote my post all day. Read what I asked. I asked what tuners are capable od disable the afm. Didnt ask who could do it. Plus ive contacted a referred tuner on here and no response. So ill just do my own research or deal with it the way it is. Thanks this is why I dont do forums.

    I have never has a problem contacting blackbear, but I know some people don't hear back. Send them another email and they will get back to you.

    Also...To buy a programmer just to turn off your AFM is a costly decision. I think someone with efi live or someone with hp tuners will be your best bet to just shut it off for cheaper.

    If you are spending money on a handheld you should get a tune from blackbear or any other reputable tuner if you are already set against using them now. You will get added performance that you really don't get from a handheld for the same price.

    lol, you asked a question, they answered...then proceeded to tell you where to get it done...a handheld is junk, and not worth the price...the chances of you buying hp tuners or efi live and doing it yourself is slim to none, I know you!

    There are local guys who can do it...what more do you want to hear Billy?

    Justin, and his company stays busy, emails take a few days. You can contact Jenna and Julie here, I send them pms all the time, and I may wait 3 days max. If you are paying to have that deleted, might as well pay to have a real tune too at the same time...which is all everyone here was trying to tell you.

    And for handhelds if you're hell bent on getting one, here are your choices for the ones that'll deactivate AFM.

    Diablosport Predator #U7194 which is now discontinued. You would have to find a used one on eBay like this one Diablo Sport U7194 Predator Unlocked Chvy GMC | eBay

    Diablosport Trinity #T1000 found here DiabloSport T-1000 DiabloSport Trinity - Free Shipping on All Orders @ JEGS

    Diablosport InTune #I1000 found here DiabloSport I1000 DiabloSport inTune Programmer for GM/Chrysler/Dodge/Ford/Jeep - Free Shipping on All Orders @ JEGS

    :rofl: because people give you more advice than you asked for? Because we gave you BETTER alternatives for a comparable price? I must be missing where we went wrong.

    We're just trying to help man. I had a programmer on my old truck and now I have a custom tune on my current one. Night and day difference. And guess what? The custom tune in person was cheaper.

    Just food for thought.

    dude, building a motor, then learning to tune, CORRECTLY is two different things! That's why most take their vehicles to tuning, you can really fuck something up if you don't know what you are doing. That's all I am saying, calm down brah!

    I get they are two different things. I really do appreciate all the info I have gotten trust me. I like to learn things I get custom tunes are where its at not hand helds. But im one that likes to learn the process as well so in future maybe I could help others as well. If I dont learn then to me whats the point all im getting at. I love tinkering on stuff and im sure everyone who has posted can appreciate that. Thanks again for all the info as of yet.
