1996 993 Valve Cover Gasket Replacement

Engine

Vehicle Information: Year: 1996; Body Type: Cabriolet; Total Mileage: 33800;

As a follow-up to my oil leak question. After taking to my mechanic it seems the problem is the right side valve cover is leaking a bit of oil. I've scheduled a time to do this work as I'm told it's not a major deal. While I'm having it done I've decided to have both sides done as the left side is showing very small signs of a leak and at the same time I am going to replace the stock mufflers with a set of Fabspeed Maxflo performance mufflers. My first question is, am I opening a can of worms by cracking the second valve cover if the leak is insignificant and how long does a successful valve cover gasket change last? My second question is do I need to change the tuning of the engine after installing the Fabspeed Maxflo mufflers? Thanks for the help
