The good news, Ryan from PMDG says he will offer direct support to Christian Grill to create NGX specific TOPCAT profiles.   PMDG, as well as any other self respecting airliner aficiando, are big fans of TOPCAT.
It's no secret that PMDG has access to tons of official data, the kind of data Christian has said is important to create realistic profiles.   

Just remember,you can use the current 737NG (700 & 800) data in Topcat with the NGX, you will just need to manually enter the weight and fuel info into the NGX FMC while we await the official NGX profile.
Hopefully, when the 600/700 expansion for the NGX is released in the future, PMDG will offer assistance to Christian to create performance data for those two variants, which are missing at the moment.

But one thing that Christian needs is TIME...

Christian has the same data as well, TOPCAT isnt his full time job,

I really hope PMDG can give Christian the data he needs to add 600 and 900 and the missing thrust configs to TOPCAT.
