Default WHICH MOTOR????

I want to upgrade the motor on my truck. I have a ESC rated at 20 turn. Right now I have a 27 turn photon motor. What motor, turn and brand would be a good upgrade without having to buy a new esc also.

I would run the Monster motor in stock. The magnets last longer to my experience.

Stick with 27T motors, the big performance jump will come with 19T which your speedo won't handle. Your Photon is most likely Duratrax's 'stock' 20T, not 27T. I prefer the Trinity CO27 stockers, great torque and good RPM's they're more forgiving in gear selection, but like to run larger pinions than most stocks.
