Mileage and start up

I am getting 16.7 mpg in my 01 stroke and was impressed that being stock. I am going to chip, exhaust and air intake. Is the chip the only thing that will help my mileage and how much will it help. Also in the morning when i start my truck it will rough idle for maybe 2 seconds? Any ideas

first thing that comes to mind is that your glow plugs may not be on long enough.

if you see a light at the end of the tunnel, it's probably just a photon torpedo
