I doubt that these upgrades will have much effect on the engine 
longevity.  Driving style changes may, or the increased performance may 
demand corresponding upgrades in suspension and brakes.    I would 
think the issues would be are you going to keep the car long enough to 
justify the upgrade, and if so, what maintenance do you anticipate for 
the engine that you might want to do while the manifold is off ?  And 
then just concentrate on all the money you are "saving" by combining 
the jobs.
