Default New Ram owner with Questions

Hello all, I had a question about performance. I've been reading up on chips and was just going to ask for a little more info on them. I have a 2010 Ram with the 4.7 and really i'm fine with the hp stock. I don't mind more hp though, and def. wouldn't mind better gas mileage. My question to you all is what kind of gains can I expect to get with the different tunes I can run, and how much hp will I be able to gain and how many mpg will I be able to gain? I've got around 400 to spend if the gains will be significant. Also, I worry about voiding the warranty and/or putting more stress on the motor/tranny and reducing their life expectancy. Are these vaild concerns? Thank you in advance for the help!

tuners void it no matter what, our trucks have the "black box" in them so it records everything you do. So if you have an issue they will go back in your computer and see it was modded.
