I say forget the 808 and swap all possible caps with polyester film.  
However, any barely audible mod will become more noticable at ear-splitting volumes, so I do agree that subtleties count. You might as well go for the 808 mod then. I dunno.  
I modded a stock ts9 to ts808 spec and although it is *slighlty* different, I'm not sure if it's actually better. Better caps will make for a more clear sound at high volumes, and in a band situation, that matters (IMO).  
I do not believe that there is any magic in the emitter followers.
