Default DoD Question

I just bought my G8 this past weekend, it has 108K miles, is there a way for me to visually tell if my car has had the DOD done? I have not noticed anything that indicates while driving that it is activating.

There's no way to tell visually. Drive about 60-65 mph on a flat surface and then maintain steady throttle. You will hear a low-pitched bogging sort of noise and feel a vibration. It is slight rather than pronounced so you have to listen for it.

If you put it engineering mode it will show if DOD is active on the gauge cluster. With the key off push and hold the left scroll wheel on the steering wheel and start the car while holding the scroll wheel in. You'll the see the cluster change and you can scroll through the different items.

Thanks will check, although I'm pretty sure its active, I have noticed the slight vibration after having been driving it now for a few weeks.

The DOD can be turned off in the tune. The best investment I ever made was to purchase HPT. I can tell you from experience if you get a converter you will SURELY here the DOD kick on. The stock converter is huge and easily hides the real DOD sound. When you go to aftermarket converter its pronounced and very annoying.

Mechanically removing it is a good excuse for putting a cam in

Well the biggest reason to do the mechanical deletion (on top of adding a cam, obviously) is that you can get rid of the weak AFM lifters! We all know that they are a major point of failure, so why keep them?
