383's are not the best choice for a high RPM engine.

your 7500 RPM will be mostly limited by the cam and gear you use with it.
I would use a good crank,callies/crower etc. though there are cheaper cranks that will also work. Likely talking an engine in the $8,000 range with good parts. for what it costs when you make this type of power,spend $1800 more and get a Dart little "M" block and build a 434.
