Default stupid question

I am recaping my GFA-5400 and I want to replace everything with newer better parts while I have it apart. Can I replace the red foil caps with these:

The film caps shouldn't need replacing just yet.

If they are simply bypass caps I doubt that you would hear much difference.

Try to identify which caps are in the signal path and concentrate on those.
