Default Wanting to buy a cortex programmer

hey there im just wondering if any one out there has any feed back on the cortex programmer? I have dual exhaust, cold air intake and throtle body spacer so i figure if it all works out it should wake the motor up a little more. Another thing thing i was wondering is, how much will it hurt the mileage if at all. thanks for any feed back

it will actually increase your mileage as long as you dont get heavy foot syndrome lol
you should also notice a increase in power but mostly youll notice the effect it has on your tranny

the cortex is by superchips, right? isn't it the same as the flahspaq except has a powertrain warranty? I'd suggest saving the money and just getting the flashpaq. Like said above it will help performance and mpg and the trans will shift firmer, that's the best part.

I just got my DiabloSport tuner, and they have been very helpful. They have a facebook page now, and answer all of the questions I have seen, including mine. There are a ton of happy DiabloSport customers...including me!
