The only thing I’m wondering right now is if there is a quality AFM delete kit with the gaskets, valley cover, bolts, and some quality lifters. Or if I should just source all the parts individually?


You can go two routes with this; try to get the absolute best deal on each and every part by ordering it yourself, or paying a bit for a complete 'kit' that has everything needed, PLUS a cam that's selected based on your specifications/wishes, by talking with one of the many companies that sell 'kits' for the LS* to replace the DOD setup. Texas Speed, Maryland Speed and I think Ligenfelter can do that for you.

You'll still have to get the ECU updated to eliminate the DOD feature, and tune to the new parts.

Maryland Speed


Whatever you do, do not order one single part from Maryland Speed. Besides that fact that it's not where you should get engine advice from, there are hundreds of negative posts about the company and owner on multiple forums. The guy is a total scum bag and people are finally starting to figure it out. Here are just a few threads. There are so many out there. Just do a search if this is not enough evidence.

Texas Speed and Tooley are fine companies.

Just my two cents...
I went with a combination of TSP (Texas Speed and Performance) DOD delete complete kit, minus the stage 1 cam. I used the 2015 Z28 LS7 factory headers. I have HP Tuners for an interface. I rely on Chris Henry Motorsports (Chris is a member on the forum here) for tuning and advise. I ended up with a Brian Tooley Racing Stage one cam. Milder than the TSP Stage 1. My motivating factors were: 1) not needing to upgrade my torque converter. 2) Chris was very familiar with the BTR stage 1 cam. For me, researching a tuner that has knowledge of the camshaft I was installing was a prerequisite. There are plenty of tuners out there. I would suggest you ask a tuner if they have a history of tuning the camshaft you want or decide on. Also, decide upon the software that you want to use. That will help determine a tuner also. Some are HP tuners only or EFI Live only.
FYI, last Christmas, some of the companies that offer DOD delete kits had holiday specials...

Regards,

Maurice
