Yes, even with a smaller engine you can go fast. Just takes you a little longer to get there. The big engines really are there to run accessories... it takes nearly nothing to make a mower move...

Since my deck drive pulley is 5 1/2 is there a way to use that as a engine pulley without lifting the motor

Yes, all you have to do is cut it off(Not with the shaft) And cut the top one off. Then all you have is a shaft with the key in it. Then take the bigger pulley and weld it where the original top pulley went(centered). Then put it on your tractor and get a bigger belt. Then drive around on your tractor until you break something else.

Those pulleys will put you at 35 mph.  I would go for a one to one ratio, or in other words, a 5 on the front, and a 5 on the transmission.  This will be 15-20 mph, which is all the faster you should go on stock steering/brakes.

I had a 8hp and a 10hp, they went plenty fast.

if its for off roading, definatly do a 6 to 6 or 5 to 5, that way you still have some tourque left over to spin the tires but you can still go like 15.
