A good 283 can make 375 hp or more,using 2.02 heads(bored 060 to 292 cubes) that would make a 3100 pound chevy 2 go low 13s maybe high 12s if you threw a lot of gear at it. If the engine was blown it might get that truck into the 13s.

N/A 283 with little work might get you into the low 17s high 16s

^^^^^What he said. You could make it run 13's but it sure would be an expensive build.
