Prop advice

Hi guys,
I have a clouds fly which I think for the money, the fact it is sold as a good tnainer/noob plane, it is damm great, flies slow easy handler, but does not like too much wind. But give some stick it can get up and go pretty good. anyway I am looking for a new motor for it, and I want a little more speed and power, but I am after an answer to a prop question, if I am running for instance a 2000kv motor on 3s and a prop of 5x5 and I get 50mph if I go to 6x5 would the speed be similar, I spose I am asking is pitch the only thing that will make a difference?
If for instance I run a 2200kv motor with a 5x5 prop and it draws 200 watts and does 60mph do I need a 5x6 for more speed or does a larger prop with with a similar pitch give me more speed?? I think I have little understanding of props!!
