I'm looking for a performance chip that is reasonably priced. And that is good for gas mileage and also performance. I do not pull a lot of trailers. I am simply looking something that will plug into the OBD port and it's fairly inexpensive, but we'll learn my driving habits and keep the Boost working without having to buy gauges.

you will not find anything like that. a chip(attaches to PCM) , or tuner (plugs into OBD port)
is going to cost between $300 for a cheap one with generic tunes and $1100 with custom written tunes.
tuners do not Learn your driving habits. they simply re tune the powertrain control module.
also, it is not recommended to add a tuner or chip without adding at least an EGT gauge to monitor exhaust temps to keep them from going too high and melting engine parts.
