Your current mods are sitting pretty for a PCM.

Gas mileage is proportional to how heavy your foot is.

Even with my cam and having my motor running ultra rich till I get my dyno tune I still get decent mileage.

I just spent $300 on my headers, $80 on the 02 sensor, $55 on the 3" cat converter, $15 on the o2 extender, $11 on the dipstick tube, $14 on the 3" to 2.5" exhaust reducer.

Headers are normally around $380 shipped but I bought them from a member of another forum.

PCM and headers is what I vote for.
