How to disable ATM 2020 v6 ?

Looking to buy a v6 with auto but does sport mode disable AFM? Or is there any way to disable it with out a tune. Need Warranty

Drive modes won't disabled it. Outside of tuning you can by a range device. I'm considering that as well

Sport Mode doesn't disable the AFM. Phastek makes a disabler for the 2010-2019 models but it doesn't look like one is made for the newer models.

Range Technology makes an AFM disabler but they donít list compatibility with 2019 or newer V6 engines. You would want to contact them for details before you buy one. There are numerous companies that sell them.

You can disable it by driving in manual mode with your paddle shifters, at least that is how my 18 2SS works... All you have to do is downshift one time and it will stay in V8 mode until you turn off the ignition... Not sure of the newer models but I would think it would be the same whether it is a V4, V6 or V8 but who knows???

From what I understand, you can remove the electric motors from the AFM valves (3 small bolts) keep the wires plugged in and just hang the electric motors under the car securely. Valves will be always open.

The V6 AFM valves are spring-loaded. They arenít electronic actuators like the V8. Disconnecting the actuators wonít prevent the engine from activating AFM mode internally. I think thatís what the OP is trying to accomplish.

I have to ask, why would you even want the AFM disabled? Like, this is the least logical thing I could think to ever buy, for pretty much any reason.

I don't have AFM anymore as I supercharged my V6. However, the extra fuel econ when I was just driving to work or whatever was really nice.

Because it's not seemless like it should be or like it is on other vehicles. It's kind of annoying in my opinion
