Well a list of all "improvements/options" for the VP. would be desirable. If such a list exists. But especially regards improving ailerons, and widening cabin of the VP-2.

What is the opinion of Gurney Flaps for the VP-2, would they be an improvement or detrimental?

Gurney flaps work in that instance if the training edge is too sharp. If the trailing edge is 1/8-1/4” instead of razor sharp, it’s just drag. The original intent was to be able to add or subtract a couple of percent of lift to balance a race car when the rules did not allow suspension adjustments during a race. They are a fix not a standard.
