I have not heard of any domestic companies offering performance upgrades as of yet. There are suspension parts available (H&R springs and coilovers) and of course wheel and tires. Some European tuners such as Hartge have stroked motors available. ESS Tuning is developing an Intercooled S/C kit but is about a year away from releasing. I spoke with Steve Dinan 3 months ago and he mentioned that they are working on a stroker motor for the 645 as well as full suspension.

Here is another chip tuner for 4.4L engine. In an email to me last week they indicated their ECU programmer was not in the USA yet. Right now the ECU would have to be sent to Europe for re-programming.
