Spicy or not?

I am thinking (well more like when I take a ride in rudy’s car I will order that day) about getting Cobb’s cams for my MY99 and I plan on getting heads around next summer should I go with the spicy? I plan to stay NA but if I do decide to go turbo or SC it shouldn’t be too much of a problem to get the turbo cams to swap out. If your going to do it you might as well do it right IMO. But would I have to bump the redline up to use the power of the cams?

Another consideration is that the Cobb mild cams were designed to be within the range that the ECU expects to see thus no CE light issues. The spicy cams have quite a few CE reports (mostly showing up when at idle).
