and dont worry about active fuel management failures
You can either buy a cam w/ DoD/ AFM delete kit, or just have it removed in the tune.
emand & AFM-A
anagement have been disconnected on thousands of Camaro's on Forums I visit. It was disconnected on my 2010 2SS/RS Procharged Camaro it's entire life, car ran flawless and made crazy hp. I sold it w/ @35K trouble free miles
The reason people say you should do some research on LS forums is because.. FOR EXAMPLE the Active Fuel Mgmt / Displacement on Demand you are so worried about only comes on L99 Automatic Motors when it comes to Gen 5 Camaro's. So for example if you wanted a 376 cu in LS WITHOUT AFM/DOD all you have to do is buy a Gen 5 Camaro LS3 Motor (FROM A MANUAL CAR), but that would be a Drive by Wire set up
This should help narrow down exactly which LS you want
