Going to look at what is supposed to be a clean AZ Midget with a vintage race legal bar but missing an engine the Spit deal fell apart at the last minute. What's the easiest way to get WHP? Does not necessarily have to be vintage legal at this time but preference would be given to that. And yes, I now realize I asked basically the same question 2 months ago. But now I'm only looking for WHP. All will require typical engine swap foibles so they will cheap up front, but more expensive downstream as you figure out how to get it all stuffed in the car and working. You can get more powerful vintage race motors, but you'd have to pay more.

K Series Midgets are giant-killer sports-cars, combining traditional appeal with performance way beyond the maker's intention. In fact, the faster KSeries Midgets approach Porsche levels of performance — but with exceptional economy and ease-in-use. In this manner, the car's abilities remained acceptable for the period. From the outset, enthusiasts modified their engines to improve performance - mainly through cylinder head, camshaft and carburation changes — better to exploit the fine handling and road-holding of the standard car.
