Depends... For one with very little wrenching talent, it'd be easier to swap engines than camshafts. Also, if budget is a big concern, it is cheaper to put on an engine that you already have, rather than buy a camshaft.

motor wont make it go faster if you only change the motor, its the gearing that makes the top speed go up. acceleration will go up with a bigger motor but not top speed unless your motor cant pull the tractor in its fastest gear( usually 6th)
