Default Sprocket ?'s (does size really matter?)

Some friends of mine got me interested in building a MB, so I bought a frame & an engine & some other bits & pieces, and now before I have even really gotten started, they are both telling me how much better their bikes run with their new 36T sprockets. I am not interested in being the fastest MB, but they both tell me that the vibration is so much less with a smaller sprocket. True or false? What about torque? There Are a lot of hills here in Tucson. Also, does the smaller sprocket adversly effect engine life? All remedial ?'s I know, but this is my first MB.
