Default Grain Subsitution Effects?

I have some left over grain from previous batches that i am looking to use, at least in part. I am looking to make a porter which calls for 8 oz chocolate malt and 8 oz caramel 60, 8 oz special B, 8 oz black malt on top of the 10+ lbs of 2-row. I have some chocolate WHEAT and some carawheat left over. I also have some munich. Aside from "aiding in head retention, etc", what would be the differences (positive and negative) if I sub'd an oz or 2??

Alcohol may be man's worst enemy, but the bible says love your enemy.

You can substitute the chocolate without any problem, that's about it.
Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"
