Well, it depends on what type of reforms would he put in place? Do they have the effect of making the Austrian army more effective, or less so?
IF the Austrian army is rendered more effective by the reforms, then possibly they do better in the 1866 war, stunting the rise of Prussia to supremacy in Germany.
