Re: replacement Transformers
You asked about the upgrade parts. I believe it means that 1) there's more filament capacity for bigger octals like EL-34s in a 6V6 amp, 2) there's a greater possible B+ current rating so you get more power from bigger tubes. The tradeoff might be a stiffer supply with 6V6s, in a standard circuit like a DR.  
Good luck with your project. :)
