2000 ZX3 Diablo Chip?

I would like to get the highest end chip out there for a 2000 ZX3. Im having trouble locating one though. Also I read some where that you can take off the rev limit and the 108 top speed.. is this true for the ZX3 as well? I havnt gotten it above 90 yet so I dont know if I even have a 108 speed limit. Next question is, if i buy a chip, and install it, and then in 2 months install an intake, is this going to mess any thing up? And if so, can I just send it back to a company to have the chip replaced?

Thanks in advance,
Dan

if you get a standard tune which is what your gonna get adding minor bolt on modifications will not do anything in effect with the chip you have
