-1 is all you want to go. -1/+2 is a common sprocket setup.

It won't give you more power. Powerplant changes do that. With driveline changes, its give and take. You will gain some acceleration off the line, but lose top end speed. I am not a huge fan of just changing one component of the driveline, especially if it is older and needing replaced. Save/spend the extra $$$'s and get a new chain and rear sprocket while your down there. Keep in mind going JUST -1 in the front will mean you will have to compensate for the slack with your chain tension adjustment. Going -1/+2 'evens' it out a bit.
