Operational WRFDA setup

I'm trying to setup some operational forecasts using WRF.
Currently I have WRF working by itself initializing from GFS 0.25 data.
But instead I would like to know if it is better practice or likely to give better results to initialize WRF via WRFDA 4DVar, also using GFS 0.25 data.
Is anyone able to comment on this?
And are there any guides on how to setup WRFDA 4DVar from GFS?
What about GEFS? Is that also a possible better choice?
