Gauges and a tuner if you're looking to upgrade. Most of your tuners can help with mileage IF you can keep your foot out of it. Then there are guys like me who gave up on mileage LOOOOONG ago.

Welcome to Powerstroke.org
The best place to start with mods would be the cheap, or free ones. Things like a zoodad mod come to my mind. Before you do any power enhancements however you should have guages.
