no mate. unless you change your ecu to an aftermarket one the AFM needs to stay.
it may start and run but you wont get far.

It'll not even run .. it'll see no airflow and therefore add no fuel and stall.

I found this out when I pulled the pipe off to check for play in the turbo and to inspect the oil blow back ..

The car would fire, and then not idle.
