Yes, it will save you some data logging steps.

yes we would need to do some new data logging after new mods are installed.. BUT, if it's going to be 6 months before getting the exhaust, I know you don't want to wait THAT long before getting it tuned and to start enjoying it even more NOW... ;)

hahaha...

please feel free to hit me up man if you have any questions...
