1982 SC Cam tensioner upgrade

I have a pristine 1982 911 SC with 45k miles that I put less than 1 k miles of Sunday street use a year.  The valves have never been adjusted I have had  a slight oil leak from the valve covers for many years and I am considering having the valves adjusted when I have the valve cover gaskets replaced. Do I really need to upgrade the cam tensioners?  I hate fixing things that are not broken and spend an additional $3000 plus.  However I understand it could cause catastrophic engine failure.  And if so which kit would be the best one to use.
