Default computer

Does anyone know of a different computer from another model that you can put in a 1998 to pep it up? My car will run pretty good if you stomp clear down on it but when you want just a little bit more then normal it doesn't have it. If there isn't a different computer that I can put in it, I'd like to hear any and all suggestions. Thanks in advance.

What car is this in? I can tune the PCM but you would need to ship it to me. I charge $125 for this.

HpTuners does support it, therefore it can be tuned. Being an NA vehicle, most of the avaiable power is going to be in loosening up the transmission parameters from torque management. This will beat up the trans a bit more, but free up a little power.

A set of ZZP ER rockers and an HV3 along with a set of headers would wake it up nicely as well.
