Made in USA : AFM Lifters

New for 2022

LS Engine AFM + DFM

Elgin Industries LS engine Active Fuel Management lifters are now available for both 2007+ AFM and 2019+ DFM applications.

The newest 2022 design for the 2019+ DFM Dynamic Fuel Management lifter HL-7025 will also fit all previous 2007+ AFM applications.

This HL-7025 lifter is included in lifter & lifter guide set HL-7026FRA for 2007+ applications.

The original design 2007+ AFM Active Fuel Management lifter is HL-7011 and HLG-7011FRA set. These will not fit DFM engines, they only fit AFM engines.

Both HL-7011 and HL-7025 are currently in production. Both AFM and DFM engines are currently in production.

Ready to ship and install

Boxed sets include ( 2 ) front, and ( 2 ) rear lifter guide assembled with lifters, each wrapped in plastic, clearly marked, ready to drop into engine, instructions are also included in each box.

AFM Lifter failures are caused by electrical issues

GM designed this AFM lifter spring as a fuse for the electrical system. Lifter failure is often caused by ECM or PCM ground-fault-interrupt (corrosion).


The lifter has ratcheting locks that will keep the lifter collapsed. The lifter spring will stay compressed to prevent the pistons from contacting the valves.


LS Engine AFM Lifter Set Contents

Set Includes:

  • ( 8 ) AFM lifters
  • ( 8 ) LS7 lifters
  • ( 2 ) Front guides
  • ( 2 ) Rear guides
AFM guide = (2) AFM + (2) LS7


Active Fuel Management LS engines have 4 cylinders that can deactivate.

Dynamic Fuel Management LS engines, all 8 cylinders can deactivate, to run on 1 cylinder in multiple firing patterns.

The new DFM lifters will work in place of AFM lifters. The AFM lifter will not work in DFM engines. Both lifters are currently in production.

Lifter Guides

The LS engine lifter guides hold the roller lifters square on the camshaft.

When replacing lifters, always replace the plastic LS engine lifter guides as the polymer will fatigue with time and mileage.

AFM delete and non-AFM performance camshafts can cause lifters to spin in the guide. Steeper ramp profiles cause additional stress on the guide.
