Glad you got ur DIC set up for this. Do you attribute it to AFM malfunction? The only "drone" I hear is when I'm on the interstate and let the cruise control take me from 55 to 75 and thats just performance. Just like when you "keep more pressure on the pedal". You don't want to disable it. If you do, use the paddle shifts. Your car sounds like it is operating normally!
Side note: I wouldn't mess with fuses unless necessary.
