you will gain power through relieving the pressure in your system

they are especially helpful if the engine has blowby and turns a lot of RPM. you dont want positive pressure in the crankcase because it causes a resistance against the pistons coming down the bore.

I need to set up a breather system on my car I noticed on the dyno that my dipstick kept popping out slightly, so there is excess pressure in there, any idea what this would run roughly to get my VC modified and the fittings welded in?

yeah FB charges $61 for 2 fittings welded on to covers.

I got mine done else where for about $65. Even had the stock breather valve pulled, welded and sanded down smoothly.

Will doing this to a NA motor shooting for 200whp help alleviate some of the pressure exerted on the pistons? Is this type of modification worth the time and money for N/A b-series? Or will it just benefit the F/I set-ups?

I have also seen setups that use an electric smog pump hooked to a hobbs switch to induce crank case vacuum.... also reduces condensation after shutdown and contamination (possible issue with E85, alc, meth..etc).
