id like to get a turbo but am slowly learning about them. so i figured this is a good place to ask....

1. do you have to chip your comp if you have a 00 civic y7? is a tune a must
2. can you know how much boost your running without having a gauge?

1. yes a tune is neccesary, youll need to convert to obd1. 0bd2 ecus wont do what you want.
2. no, unless you have datalogging type stuff and you can view it on a laptop

Well lets see your gonna get flamed man there is a ton of info on this website the search button is your friend. But I will help you out no you dont have to chip your ecu but if you want a reliable boosted car than I would suggest it. And for you Im pretty sure that your car is obd2 so you are gonna need a obd2-obd1 conversion with a obd1 ecu that is chipped and socketed. And a gauge is the easiest way to tell how much boost you are running. oh and yest a tune is a must

2 technically if you know your waste gate is good you could run off of that. like if your WG is set at 6 lbs you will max out a 6
