Default Will shift kit help with strong headwinds?

I was only managing around 12 mph against the headwinds in Houston today on my China girl (I normally cruise at 25 mph). Aero mods could probably get me 2 or 3 mph. Would a shift kit help by allowing to select a gear where I can maintain max torque rpm? I also considered just installing a derailleur/cluster and adding good old human power in the headwinds.
