In addition to what others said. Pick and chose your tracks. You will do best on black sticky or clay power tracks. The competion will run out of horses before you do.

First off in 3500-4500lbs div's I & II, a WD is already a real strong puller. What div's were you planning on pulling?

WD49 My wd has wd 45 crank and pistons, and a d 17 allis head on it.I have cut tires, some places won't let you run cut tires. It will hold it's own in the weight class. Runs out of traction long before power. Good luck and look for the end of the track. Archie

Get it running good, get it balanced and get your tires right and you will have a tractor as strong as any in it's class. Now if you're talking a sneaky powerhouse, the more power you want the more money you spend, how much power do you want?

Generally new tires are not the way to go. You should look for some that probably have less than half tread on them. One of the other posts mentions "cut tires" that is how you get better performance from your tires. The next key is air pressure and weight. You will run out of traction long before you run out of power on most tracks.

45 crank and pistons, or pistons from a newer tractor with the same engine but with higher compression. Maybe the "tall head" too.
