in a civic... you're not really going to be gaining much with a tuned ecu. they are really going to remap your fueling which is going to give you maybe 6-8hp increase. you would be better off just saving up for a turbo. spending $3-400 on a chip isn't going to leave you super satisfied.

if you are already running a turbo then don't worry about a chip. do some dyno tuning and see what kind of numbers you can put out. maybe a stand alone system would work bettter for you.
