get the chip last, first get your car lowered, then get the intake (snorkel, pod/panel filter, piping) then get a cam, injectors and then go for your chip......unless your going to do a forced induction setup then i'd say do some mild work to your engine first, anyway the way i see it is the chip goes in last, sorta like dessert, that way you can tune your chip to all your mods rather then getting the chip and having to go and re tune it every time you do or add something to your car.

hope that helps a bit
