Will I break anything

Ok, well I've been thinking about the future, and what kind of money I really plan on spening on my car, and what I want out of it. I've decided as of now that staying N/A is the way to go, I just don't really need all kinds of power that a turdbo or swap would give me, and I want absolute reliability. So I figured I'd go ahead and plan on finally getting a hotshot header, an SE-R throttle body, maybe some 11:1 pistons, the JWT ECU, and the cams, to compliment my exhaust, intake, and pulley, and just be done with it and enjoy what I have on the street and on the autox course (and the road course when I get my cage and harness). Inside engine work like port&polish, etc. are a possibility, but not for certain. So I guess my question is, do I risk breaking anything with these types of mods? Should I also look into reinforcing my engine just in case? I wouldn't think so since I won't be making all that much power, but I want to be sure so I can do what I must to retain the reliability. Also, for those of you who may have some experience in this area, have any wild guess on what kind of power I may make from the above mods?

Frist off I'm not an expert or anything, but unless you go for turbo or NOS I don't think you need to worry about reinforcing your engine. As far as power from the mods, you can check out the engine section at, they have dyno charts for most of the mods your talking about.
