    If that list is all you are planning on doing to your head you will see minimal power gains. Now add a set of cams (pick a grind that matches what you want to do with the engine) and you would be talking reasonable power gains.

    with just springs, retainers, valves and a valve job? maybe like nothing. add cams to that mix and then you will see gains.

    get cams instead of P&P if you haven't already done it, if you have then I would stick with Portflow/Alaniz.
