I don't know about the kit, but getting DoD tuned out was the best thing I've done.

you would still need a opsu adapter unless you wanna plug the port. you should just piece a kit together yourself man..

It's spendy. Just search for delete on their site to see it. The one with lifters is like 300 bucks but you still need head gaskets etc. Piece it yourself or just tune it out and hope the lifters don't break.

I deleted mine and got about 12mpg in town, and about 20 highway. The helecopter sound was worth the gain in mpg for me. I average about 17city, 27highway.

^ Only 20 highway? My car's getting 23-26 interstate and highway running 100% rich... Worst average was 15, that was around town with some runs thrown in...

And about it being the best, sounds better and seems like it's a lot better for the engine, mine was making some awful noises when it couldn't decide between 4 and 8 cylinders, it would just switch and switch back a few times. Also, prevents uneven engine wear.

Sorry for the bad link guys,doing everything off my cell phone...Thanks for posting the right link Mike...

So DavidGXP how much of a cost difference would it be to piece it together?JP_GXP I've been wanting to delete it thru a tune,but like neilownz say might break the lifters...

Sh*t I MPG sucks,I average 13.9 around town and if I take here on a long drive which I don't do to often I average about 22.5 hwy...Must be the size 13 shoe,LOL

Just follow my head and cam swap thread buddy. I'll post some part numbers and stuff later.
So far..
LS2 lifter bucketsx4
LS7 lifters 8-16 (you can reuse your non DOD lifters
If you have VVT then you'll need a LS2 cam gear 1 bolt. If you dont have VVT then your stock gear is fine
Stock pump is fine
GM MLS head gaskets x2
GM head bolts x2
SMC or Katec valley tray with OPSU adapter
A way to tune out DOD. HP tuners or a handheld.

Ya man, my mileage went way down with AFM disabled. Currently, I average almost 19mpg overall. That's driving hard with A/C 100% of the time.
