I got a "black box"(ecu) together with a pulley kit.
I don't think you'll gain much just with just a ECU. A ECU can't feed more air into the engine, only regulate timing and fuel.
If you want more omph, you need more air.

A ECU works better with a turbo engine, there you can increase the turbo pressure and get more air into the engine.
