Have you ever watched rallying or car racing - those guys tweek just about everything and guess what they have a team of expert mechanics chasing after them and even at that 30% fail to finish due to engine probs. Have you ever heard the expression "there's no such thing as a free lunch". It has to be acepted that any serious mods will affect fuel consumption and reliabilty. More power will put strains on all aspects of a vehicle (brakes, suspension, etc). It should also be noted - how much extra are you going to have to pay on your insurance premium.
