Default Looking for help!

To start off, I just bought my very first motorized bicycle kit, and I love it. Here is a link to look at it if you want.

After putting it on a Walmart-special "mountain bike", I took it for a ride. It runs, but since it's just a cheap Chinese one, it doesn't have much power.The problem I have is that I have no idea how to make it run better. I don't know how to tune it and make sure everything is balanced, and I don't know what after-market parts I could install to help it.
It can't accelerate on a slight incline, and you can forget about doing hills without pedaling your butt off. I don't have a speed gauge, but on flat ground, it seems to do about 10-15 mph. I've done some reading, and it seems I should have more power out of it. What should I do? By the way, I'm a 6'2" and 185lbs, so there isn't too much of a load. Before I forget, I'm super excited to have joined the forum. I've looked through many of the posts here, and you guys seem to know your stuff. Thanks
