Default Risks of adding performance...

I am wondering if by adding such things as a cold air intake, exhaust and headers will add too much stress to my engine and cause me more problems than good? If so is there anything i should do before starting my upgrades?? I have heard that replacing the complete set of head gaskets can be a good idea, anyone have expieience?? Answer one or answer all, thanks.

Why did you post this under general tech help and then again here?? There's NO need for that at all.I answered the other one and mods need to delete this one since it's a duplicate question.

simple mods installed correctly will not have an adverse affect on the car. but once you start with the serious mods, reliability will suffer if you do not replace the proper parts with upgraded ones...
