ECU Upgrades? Horsepower, other results?

Hey guys,

Since I'm in the market... (probably will be buying in spring or early summer), the ECU mods... what kind of gains can you see with that? Any adverse affects?

I am NOT going to add a turbo so I am just wondering what the affect of the ECU mods (are there more than one? A few links would be GREAT!) on the horsepower/torque, 0-60 time, and the drivability of the car on a day-to-day basis.

Thanks and let me know!
