You can get "mail order" tunes from just about any tuning company out there.... They can email you the file and you upload it onto the handheld.

I recommend finding a local tuner with a dyno and going custom. That way you kno the AF is right and you'll make more power then some guy from across th country typing on a computer. As far as the 02s, Im not sure

Ill have to agree, i personally wouldn't use a mail order tune, its worth the extra cash to have the car tuned on the dyno. This way you know exactly where you're air/fuel is at, and you also have true pony/torque numbers.
