Cylinder heads

If you bore and stroke an engine, can you still use the original cylinder heads?

When you add a stroker kit, or put in another engine that has been bored and stroked, do you have to recalibrate/reset the car's computer?

So for bolt ons you just have to reset the computer by unplugging the battery? Then when you go to power adders like super/turbocharging or major engine work, you have to get a custom tune?

yeah, but there are more cost effective mods, generally than the tuners which go for $400.
