Tuning for my E36 S52 Swap?

Bimmersport just did a nice engine and powertrain swap for me. I have a 1993 318is, and they swapped in a 1998 S52 motor, OBD1 conversion, M3 tranny, axles, driveshaft, diff, etc... The car runs great! However, tt is running on a 325 computer. So the car thinks the engine is a 2.5 litre and im not getting full power out of it just yet. I need a tune and Im wondering if you guys can point me in the right direction. If I could get it done locally that would be great. Any ideas? thanks guys!

+1 for Mark D'sylva. He's got some great tuning experience, and it's always nice to support the local vendors. Trust me, you won't be disappointed with his software...
