Also if there are any other tips or affordable ways I can besides laying off the pedal that would be great. Thanks!
My dad invested in one of these in his V10 Ram:

Really shows you how much pedal you're putting into it, and if you can safely keep an eye on it while you're driving, it should help with gas mileage in the long run.

I'll be doing headers on my 460 eventually, plus a true dual exhuast with an H-pipe.
