IMHO, you need to be careful then. Here's a story from some entrepreneur
(I can dig up the name, if someone wants) who gave a talk recently.
Early on, he had a site that had a top Google ranking, and was pulling
in a few $100K's per month. Somehow he got it in him to "improve" the
site, redo'ing it all with some new technology. Literally "overnight" or
sooner, as soon as he deployed his site, his Google ranking dropped, and
so did the $$ stream. It took him a few days (and money spent on
consultants) to figure out that due to the massive site changes, the
ranking was re-evaluated as though it were a brand new site (i.e. he
dropped to < 100). To make matters worse, he had thrown away his old
site (i.e. deleted it, and could not recover it). He spent weeks or
months trying to regain the ranking, but gave up eventually.
So maybe you should start with a new site or at least add the new stuff
under a new url path. Or, gradually phase in the changes.
