Talking Mods for power & MPG

so I just bought my ram a few weeks ago, and so far i have basically changed the oil and ordered a new exhaust (magnaflow dual catback) I plan on doing a few other things to the tuck but was wondering what other people's opinions are. I'm looking to increase the mpg's if possible and give it a little more power and torque. I can put on and work on everything myself and am looking to spend somewhere in the area of a grand. (bought the exhaust for $250) what would you say are some of the top mods to be done to these trucks?

If your doing exhaust you mideaswll throw a set of headers on, also look for the thread on here on the diy black mamba cold air intake... After you get it breathing good go check out a sct tuner from hemifever.com... It runs 265$ and its a custom tune to what you have done to your truck...
