Hah...not really any such thing as "cheap" horsepower...

But the most cost effective manners of getting more power out of an engine are a free-flowing intake and exhaust, same things you'll hear anywhere. You can get max (depending on engine, that is) approximately 15-25 more HP this way. Anything else requires a tuner and performance parts.

Good luck!

Most people will recommend the Durango air hat. Search it.
