Default some questions about boosting power...

according to the stats ive read, my 01 2500 cummins is around 210-230 i believe (less than 300 guaranteed). i was wanting to up my total horsepower output to around 400 to 475ish tops.

what are some safe options for someone on a tight budget? or at least what would i be looking at costwise to achieve that kind of HP gain? how much (if any) mpg's will i loose? and will it shorten the life span of something like the injector pump, or anything else vital or extremely expensive? and last, but not least, are they things that someone with general mechanical know how could do or would i need a professional to install them?
