If you get the sct one from American muscle I believe you have to send it back and they will upload your new mods and they will send it back and you just plug it back in and go!!!

Some dyno shops will give you custom tunes without dyno time for about the same price as AM. For only a few mods you would be fine with the Bama tunes until you start heavily modifying. A dyno tune would get the most out if your car in the long run.

+1, I'm about to send mine in to them and get mine changed. Only downside is it takes a couple weeks on average.

You can drive it, just may not run 100% right. Minor mods it wouldn't hurt anything.

That one looks like a good cam...I'd go with that one personally If I decide to redo my cam.
Got a TFS1 right now on my 87' Gt.
And a XE274hr in my 89' LX

Stock motor you will probably lose of the line torque but it should pick up rather quick

Overall no you will gain torque, but your power band is going to change. It will start later in the rpm's if that makes sense.

Yes check the rpm ranges. Heads and intake will have nice gains with a cam.

Yes but if you go with 1.7 rocker arms you need to check valve clearance and you'll need different valve covers!

Also will definitely have to notch the pistons and change valve springs, which I would do going more than .500 lift.
