Increasing yoru exhaust ports will make it so it is easier to get rid of exhaust.. I think it would increase tq and hp so would doing the intake.... it just allows easier breathing for the engine..

First, Horse power is just torque at a certain RPM. Larger exhaust ports can hurt scavenging and air velocity on the low end, so can hurt low end torque(and subsequently HP). In the higher RPM range it will generally increase torque(and HP).

This is a very general statement however since there are no absolutes. It is highly dependant on the combination and use of the engine.
