New to the forum. Have a 2006 SS Looking to upgrade performance any recommendation. Want to start with engine and then suspension. Also is there a way to cancel out the 4cyl mode. I realize oil consumption now and smoke out exhaust as when 4-8cyl mode switch. 63,000+ miles on it

You need new lifters to delete it completely, but the tune will shut it off.

you don't need to delete the DOD completely to fix the oil consumption issue, their is an updated oil pan gasket and piston ring cleaning that takes care of the oil consumption issues. See TSB#11-06-01-007. The new oil pan gasket has a baffle on it (as shown in the pic below) to prevent oil spray from the DOD system from spraying up on to the pistons and being sucked in when the cylinders are shut off. The oil pan is not an easy job and will take most of a day to complete, but when done the engine will use less oil.
