Superchips Cortex Firmware Including Advanced Data Acquisition
The new Cortex firmware includes basic data acquisition such as timed speed and distance runs (0 – 60 and ¼ mile). New features include advanced data acquisition of monitoring engine vitals such as RPM, speed, temperature, and O2 sensor readings.
The firmware is the initial release of the data acquisition software suite that will eventually become the PowerLOG, PowerWATCH, and PowerSYNC performance softwares of the PowerPAQ Software Suite which are expected to be available in all Cortex and Flashpaq performance programmers by the end of the year.
The PowerPAQ Software Suite will work on the innovative Cortex (all applications) and best selling Flashpaq (all applications). Flashpaq is the best selling programmer that delivers street busting horsepower or maximum torque for more towing power. Cortex is the most recent innovation in a long line-up of world-class Superchips performance programmers and combines all of the features of the Flashpaq, adding to it the industry’s first two-year powertrain warranty and OEMFLEX tuning, all in a compact, user-friendly programmer.
The Cortex product is essentially never out of date with regular, free updating exclusively at Superchips.com. Superchips consistently re-engineers their calibrations to stay in-line with the new calibration files OEM manufacturers release and makes them available at no cost to their customers.

Challenger SRT-8 Exhaust from MagnaFlow
MagnaFlow Performance Exhaust engineers have quickly worked to develop several new exhaust options for the ’08-’09 Dodge Challenger 6.1L Hemi SRT-8.
The first option available is a stainless steel dual cat-back utilizing 3” mandrel-bent tubing, a dual in/out resonator and dual polished straight-through mufflers, finishing with 4” polished double wall angle cut quad tips. This system will also be available without tips to allow retention of the factory tip design. MagnaFlow’s engineers maintain that the straight-through nature of their design gives the Challenger a boost of 12 horsepower and 18 lb. ft. of torque, with strong gains across the entire power band. Its smooth, deep tone takes on a defiant roar on throttle, while maintaining a respectable rumble while cruising.
MagnaFlow will also make an axle-back system available for the vehicle, with the quad tips or the option to retain the stock tips. Additionally, MagnaFlow plans a “Competition Series” utilizing their Magnapack mufflers for those looking for an aggressive tone and maximum power gains.
Manufactured to ISO9001 quality standards, MagnaFlow’s stainless steel exhaust products all have a lifetime warranty. To hear high quality sound clips of MagnaFlow’s exhaust for the Challenger SRT-8, visit www.magnaflow.com.
