Currently I have Axle Back and Vararam and axle back exhaust. Future mods within the next year include Cam and Headers... Will it benefit me to purchase the Cortex now? and can alter it for Future mods.

I bought the cortex with the same future mods in mind. I plan on selling it and going with a custom dyno time when I get to that point. It is a great product and it will pep your car up noticeably, especially if you go with the 93 tune...

Bottom line is the cortex is not compatible with the more intense mods ex. Cam headers etc

Just making sure I understand this tho, if you set it to the 93 tune, one better make sure you always have access to at least 93 octane gas, right??? I would have set mine at 93, but there's not always 93 octane around.

If tuned for 93 and 87 gas is put in, chances of predetonation ("Pinging") is increased, and that's not good for your engine.
