tuning a ZX3

So I'm about to upgrade my 03 ZX3 with a JRSC with BBK and need to know about tuning the car up. I'm not sure how exactly to go about this, cause I'm fairly new to the modding world. I plan on installing all the hardware myself. I know I wont have any problems with that. But the software stuff is pretty foreign to me. Should I take it someplace to get it tuned or buy one of the little handhelds and do it myself?

That's assuming you are buying the kit new, if it's a used kit, then the tune is probably not included.
