Default Which engine under $200 do I wanna get for my IGT2?

I'm still running with the stock engine in my GT2. Been browsing around for an after market engine to run. I'm new to the nitro scene so I dont know much about all of the different engines out these days. What do you guys think of the LRP Z .28R Spec 3, the Axial 28RR-2, or the Werks Racing Team Line B5 .21 Off-Road Competition Buggy Engine w/2010 Carburetor? Or if theres something better out there for under $200 please point me in the right direction. Do I wanna stick with a .28 engine or some suggest .21, like I said, I'm new to this so I dont know. Thank for your help!

Here are links to the engines I mentioned:

I ran the axial 28RR on my gt1... I would stay away from it!

Have you looked at the picco p3? or the dyanamite big red .28? Theres also some RB Concept engines for under 200

If you are going to race in the spec class make sure the new engine is in the approved list.

I'm going with the .28 Picco Team Turbo engine. I have a few other questions for you guys.
1. If I run 20% what plug would I want to get? The O.S. P5?
2. If I run 25%, would I need to mess with any shimming?
3. If I run 25%, what plug would I wanna run?

Thanks for all your help!
