how much hp gain??

I have a 72 1.7 motor that I am going to be rebuilding. I have a few questions about what to do to get a stock 1.7 to put out 100-110 hp using the stock FI that will stay reliable as a daily driver. I would like to get some slip in 96mm pistons/cylinders and port/polish the heads. Should I stay stock or go stainless valves? How much of a hp gain will I notice with the 96's? Is there a mild cam that will have a good broad range that you guys would recommend? I dont want a rough idle but something that will give me more power throughout the rpm range. The motor I have I believe puts out 80hp. I would like to be around the 100-110 hp range. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanx in advance!!
Actually,the 914 is a "Poor Man's Porsche". You buy one and you end up poor...Or it ends up covered with Por 15? Either way, something's poor...
