you really dont need a custom chip until you upgrade your injectors and MAF...basically the "MIC". Other than that...there's really nothing i can think of that would require a custom burned chip..unless you want your idle raised.

You can get a custom burn anytime, with any mods. But, consider that a custom burned chip costs about $350.00 and you will need at least 2 Dyno runs (at about $100.00 a pop) to get it just right. Is it worth the $500.00 or $600.00 to gain a few HP.

Like I said, I've got one because my car WILL NOT run without one. I also have an automatic, and any chip helps that quite a bit.
