Question The best way to 40+mph

Hey everyone! So I've been spending some time looking around the sight trying to find out what people think is the best engine and kit combinations and I've got a couple ideas but I'm not sold yet. I guess what I'm trying to do is get to a 40+mph bike with the least amount of money possible (I don't want to spend so much that I could have bought a used moped) while still maintaining reliability.

I weigh in at 175lbs.
The bike will be a full suspension mongoose motorized bicycle that I plan on putting some high pressure cruising tires on.
We don't have any hills that I really need to worry about since I'm in Florida.
And I don't mind doing a little pedaling if I have to to get started.

What do you guys think, is it even feasible? Or am I just dreaming here and would need some serious cash for a high performance engine.

As always your opinions are greatly appreciated!
