Default Piston and Sleeve or new motor?

Ok I want to get more power out of my RS4 3 evo and have it be cheap enough to get more things. Should I just replace the piston and sleeve or should I get a new motor. If a new motor which one?

I want to basically do drift and thats about it. Drift bashing in the street. It has the 15 motor in it now......would this be good enough to drift?

Besides the motor all I need is tires and rims.......Would anyone on here have something for me?

would the 3.0cc motor that HPI just put out do well? What carb will fit in it? Will my 15 carb fit?

If it fits your car, you cannot beat the bang for the buck from the OS TZ.18.

Isn't that the stock motor for their Nitro drift model? I would think that's a decent choice for drifting. You don't really want a powerhouse for that application, smooth control is more important.

I've been doing some drifting with stock AE15 in my NTC3 and it's almost too much power w/o the carb restrictor.
