Some Bigger/Better iron certainly couldn't hurt.
Hammond and Edcor might be good places to start.

Default Edcor opt

I have the Edcor opt in my kit and the improvement is about ten percent. For the money, the best improvement to date was the upgraded Ruby Gold caps mentioned in other threads. The caps were around twenty five dollars verses one hundred for the opt. With the total in mods and kit I am at around five hundred. This kit has been a ton of fun and very educational.
