Building T7 promoters onto primers

I need to run a transcript off a 1kb PCR product purely as a means to
generate RNA as a test system for an RT reaction.
I know I can just stick a T7 promoter sequence on the 5' end of one of
my primers but is there any additional extra sequence after the promoter
that would aid/increase the amount of RNA produced? Just wondering. I'll
probably use an Ambion or Epicentre transcription kit.
The problem with being on the cutting edge is that you occasionally get
sliced from time to time....
