If you are building a track ride you need a real bottom end to handle 7500 rpm all the time. Get loose clearances on the mains and rods, Tight clearances on the pistons, lots of camshaft and heads to match. When all said and done you will have a radical 383 12:1 compression or higher and 2gs in the heads and valvetrain just to make the motor last for the long run. 1.5 hp per c.i. is great but its gonna take more than just an intake.
