New to ECU Tuning, Please help 03 Zx3.

Today was my first day driving my 03 ZX3!! Fun little car handles well and isn't quite as slow as I first imagined.

The only work I've done on the car currently is posted on my signature, please take a look.

So basically I'm wondering if an ECU tune can help improve my cars performance without sacrificing gas mileage.. or if it's every the correct step to take at the moment.. if so what brand?

If this isn't the correct step to take please let me know.

Someone told me cams, someone told me exhaust.. I'm not too interested in either of those options but ECU tuning is something I am interested in.

Totally new to ECU Tuning.. fill me in with basic information that I may need to know before I spend my money on something I won't get any benefit out of. Thanks FF :D
