megasquirt if you want to build your own. there are base maps out there to get it running, then you tune it from there.

Why do you want an aftermarket ECU? There is not much a J3 tune cannot do unless you have modified alot of stuff. even then...

a decent lower scale ems ecu, which is fully a fully programable ecu costs $1200
an upper scale ecu which is also fully programable but has more options is around and over $2000

unless your going turbo/supercharged or have huge amounts of engine work dont waste your time...

if you want to improve fuel consumption leave it alone and throw that 15hp chip you listed in your signature in the bin, those dodgy chips only make your car use more fuel then necessary and dont improve anything....
