VANOS seals yes or no?

My car (2004 330xi) is due for VCG and Oil filter housing gasket due to oil leaks, should I do the VANOS seals even though there are no signs or symptoms of failure and no codes? Recently I've been experiencing a lower torque (lack of power) in the lower RPM! Will i gain the lost torque in the lower RPM if VANOS is done? The car has 142K, had it for two years now and no history of prior maintenance! The car had 124k when I bought it. Any advice will be appreciated.
