How long is a piece of string? :D
In fact, how much money are you willing to throw at an aftermarket ECU?

A cheap way would be to see if your ECU catchcode is supported by the Elimator Chip as you can then at least get it dyno tuned properly for every single kw and nm that your engine can generate.
So that'd be less than $1,000 for the hardware and you pay for the dyno time on top.

im using a ems stinger they are around the $1200 mark.

as an example, i was running the std ecu with a piggy back and it made 175rwkw, and just by changing to the ems stinger it gained 20 rwkw.. to 194rwkw
this is on a supercharged ed, and both the piggyback and the ems were tuned on the same dyno within a few days or each other...
