Not sure what you mean but maybe you want a tuner like Hypertech. This is not an endorsement though.

This a hard one cause it all depends on just what you are going to do to the engine, a reprogrammer might be the way to go if your don't get too radical with the mods, I suggest you visit your local speed shop, tell them what you are going to do and what they suggest, sometimes you have to send out the ECM and have the main programming totally redone to match the mods you have done to your engine. Remember power costs so none of this is going to be cheap.

Once you get your engine specs, there are companies out there to tune the computer for your engine. Here is one for you to check out... ExaTorq Tuning and Performance, 888.873.8012. Also this is not an endorsement.
