Does the Pulsar LT disable AFM/DFM by locking out 10th gear (like running in L9) or are all 10 speeds functional but only in V8 mode?

I had the Pulsar LT for quite some time before switching to a full tuner from Superchips. All gears are operational with AFM/DFM disabled. It simply overrides the ECM's ability to shut down the cylinders. You can also shut off your speed limiter too!

How much of a Difference does the tuner make versus just the pulsar LT?

The tuner adds power, whereas the Pulsar LT is just a functionality adjuster. The tuner has all of those same functions but also re-writes the ECM to advance spark for better mid-range horsepower and torque. But the Pulsar was nice because it allows you to adjust functions with steering wheel controls, and the tuner needs like 10 minutes to re-program everything.
 
Just installed the Pulsar LT- Got rid of AFM and auto stop and adjusted for 295 70 18. Throttle response set to level 3. Mileage seems to be the same but the truck is much more responsive. I highly recommend the upgrade if you’re on the fence!
 
I have been running the Pulsar LT on my 2020 6.2 for over 15,000 miles now. I love it. Added a catch can the same week I added the Pulsar... I now have over 21K miles.
 
I picked up a tip on of all places Instagram. Check your gear ratio once you install the Pulsar LT. Evidently it comes with 3.73 programming…and the TrailBoss is 3.23 so you have to correct that. Just fyi.

Thanks for the tip, I will check into it this evening when I have time, I will report back to what I figure out.

If this were the case, I would expect the speed shown by the truck and the speed shown by something like Waze to be different. Mine are the same. Been running Pulsar LT for the last 28K miles.

Same here, my dashcam confirms my speed to be spot on.

Mine too

If you change it you enter both the old and new ratio. If it was preloaded you could just enter the new ratio.

I think it leaves the standard ratio the Ecm was loaded with from the factory unless you change it.
 
Yes just checked mine out.. Everything is good the way the Pulsar came with leaving gearing alone… Speed will be off with adding bigger tires, but there is an adjustment to fix that..

Same here. I’d put about 10k on mine but when I checked the ratio setting mine was at 3.73…I had never changed it so it must have come that way. Just worth checking…or not. I don’t really care just sharing what I learned and discovered.
