Thanks for the cap sugestions all.  
I ended up rethinking the cap change and decided to try out different preamp tube combinations first.  
I discovered that the 12AY7 was critical in the first position, this kept the low G to E notes tight and punchy.  
The second preamp tubes basically added their own charactor to the overall sound. All 5751 and 12AX7 types sounded excellent in their own way.  
Surprise!, the stock tube setup sounded best! Praise Leo (& RCA). I thought I would post my findings for those who are considering wielding the soldering iron on the caps.
