get the 3.0 UIM, SVT TB, gut your precats or get headers, port/polish your heads and Then get the chip. Currently you probably wont gain more than 5-8hp with a chip, and i believe thats on the optimistic side. Unfortunatly Duratecs dont respond well to ECU upgrades N/A without lots of other stuff first.

Chips are usually the last thing you'll want to do- There's so much more work you can do before trying to muck with the computer- Larger intake manifolds, headers, P&P, hi-flow cat, etc...

ok so i wont go with the chip yet.....i have emissions so i cant gut the precats....and i have a warranty so i cant get new headers and im pretty sure i cant get the upper intake manifold....what should i do to gain some noticable performance? i am not looking for performance too much im mostly cosmetic but i want to be able to burn any civic or other ricer for that matter...what should i get ?
Thanks

Yeah, sucks man. Mines still under warranty for a few more years so it's basically stuck for now. I've got an intake, looking for an exhaust but I think thats about the only thing I can do performance wise before screwing my warranty. I'm sorta forced to do cosmetics now. Actually, will the tb void the warranty? I know you have to break a gasket so...... I dunno.
