Tuning my zx3?

Hey guys! so im kinda new to the whole car scene, and i recently bought a 2001 zx3 that i gave a nice new paint job, and I've installed an intake with a K&N filter on it, and I plan on getting a new muffler, and a performance chip, and i was wondering if anybody knew of a good place to tune my zx3, or how to tune it, and when, thanks!

You need to get a handheld tunner. Look at SCT. They have a variety of tunners for those cars. Also you can get them tuned remotely by members here on the forum. Particularly Tom. He sales and tunes them remotely.

Basically an sct authorized shop, I think they have a finder on their site.

If not Tom has pretty much been the go to guy for awhile.

Focus-Power Tuning. This is your best option.
1Turbofocus. Is Tom. On here all the time. He sells the SCT handheld devices. Plus tunes your car remotely. Have used his service for a lot of tuning.
