Default Brushed motor suggestions for a GWS warbird?

I have a few of these planes, and always run them with the geared 350 stock motor.

Now I'm looking for a bit more speed, but without running to the expense of a brusheless/li poly setup. Currently running 8 cell packs.

I see GWS makes some geared 400 motor kits, in the following gear ratios:

I'm thinking also to get the best speed increase I should be looking at a slightly better motor too.

If anyone could suggest a 400 motor that would work well and also suggest which of these gear ratios would be best suited, I'd very much appreciate it. I'm a little concerned as to whether the motor pinion in the GWS gear kit linked above would fit on any 400 size motor or not.

Basically I want a bit more speed & power without making the jump to brushless.

Thanks in advance for any help.
