I think the problem with AFM as a whole is the highway speeds of today. When I had AFM activated and was cruising at highway speeds (let's say 65 for shiggles) I spent far more time in 8 cyl mode than I did in 4 cyl mode. I think there ought to be a software update for that, but I hate most things electronic anyway.

I agree with what hot rod was saying( i think). On my truck it seems that tha AFM kicks it into 8 cylinders a little too early sometimes. Like when driving on fairly flat roads and barely picking up the throttle, it almost instantly goes to 8.2008 Silverado LT 5.3, Rancho 4", 18x9 XD Addicts, 295/70/18 Nitto Trail Grappler m/t's, Westin brush guard, Go Rino steps, Truxedo lo pro cover, magnaflow, tow mirrors.
