Default Best way to go on a mildy modified 1997 ej22?

I have recently decided that I want to be able to tune my car, but as I have seen with looking around, most people here are forced induction and/or have a much newer model car than me. So I am still kinda in the dark as to the best route for me to take towards tuning my car, as I see that some of the piggyback systems are not compatible with my ecu.

I guess what I really want is a way to tune the car for future mods(cams, perhaps high compression pistons or stroked crankshaft), and be able to monitor more the motor more closely. But I want to have something that has preset curves so I don't have to build a tune from scratch, as I have only tuned a carburetor on my harley sportster. Not much experience on my part.

What can I expect to need to buy?

Obviously either the standalone ecu or piggyback.

I have my laptop, but will the ecu come with software or do I have to get it elsewhere?

I plan on getting a wideband o2 sensor.

About the resonance issues with the maf sensor: i would really like to be able to put a better intake on it, but I want to avoid the problem with the resonance chamber out of the intake. Do I need to get a different maf sensor to avoid this, and if so, what would work for the ecu?

I'm not sure what else I will need, so any suggestions? I know I'm still a noob, but I'm really hoping to get good experience from this and get my car running better at the same time.
