Default more propulsion

so I posted earlier about stroke count, and you guys were really helpful. So I have yet another question for you. Propulsion, how do I get more bang for my buck.
When I first started swimming with TI I was still flailing(sp?) away with my legs (lack of balance), but I was able to get my stroke count down to 15 without working hard.
Now I have gotten down the concept of a two beat kick, but my stroke count is back up to 20. My balance has gotten to the point where I can swim without kicking/sinking, but somewhere I lost power.

how do I get more push out of each stroke. Is it a lack of rotation in my hips, do I need more push with my arms.

Any advice is always welcome. Thank you!!!
