Lifter Release Kit (Comes with VLOM Plug)
Comes with lifter release tool and the plug to block off the oil port in the VLOM. New Update for newer modeles with Direct Injection see video above. 2019+ vehicles equipped with DFM have not been tried yet and is believed unable to work. For information on the VLOM mod see this https://youtu.be/xFr8TxgxJow video.
Disclaimer: The lifter release trick will not work if V4 mode is still active. In order to shut the system off it must be disabled in the tune. I recomend LT1swap.com for this. The VLOM mod is also highly recommended but done at your own risk. For more information see

The tool is made of softer steel to protect the lifter and the block. If you hit it sidways, just like a nail it could bend. The end of the tool will need to be reshaped for stubborn lifters or use on multiple vehicles. It can be reshaped easily with grinder or file. Just try to avoid reshaping the spot that directly contures to the side of the lifter.
