Default Honda Civic performance chip scam ?

I have a 2005 honda civic dx, pretty slow car i already added a cold air intake and a flow master, just ordered some headers and am now thinking of buying a performance chip. i heard that they break down your engine after a while because it basically tricks your engine. Well i just want to know if there is any official pcm that really work without the tricking ?? also what other parts can i add to increase hp in my car ? to make it faster ?

yea, it's hard to trust eBay. but Hondata does make good products. However, if you do know that you're gonna do more modifications to your car, don't get it tuned until AFTER you finish with your mods, otherwise you'll need to get your car tuned AGAIN.

Turbo is a great way to increase hp, and for Civics, there's always a huge aftermarket support for them. I'm sure the kit won't be too expensive, but install and tune are what really kill ya
