I need some advice about a performance chip. Is it okay to add one before all planned mods are done, or should I wait until the planned mods are finished. If it is okay to add it now, what is the best "bang for the buck" chip available for the mods I have done to my car (listed below). Thanks in advance.

The only good chip is a custom dyno-tuned chip. Get all your mods then find a reputable tuner to tune your car on the dyno with an autologic software. You really don't have a lot of mods that would require a chip right now and "off the shelf" chips can add some power, make zero power or at worst reduce your power.

Chips are best to tie everything together so that you are getting the most out of the changes you've made to your engine. Exhaust mods can throw off your A/F ratio a little but usually not that much. Once you do heads, a cam, intake swaps or such then a chip becomes more important.
