Personally I would go 383, with 11:1 compression forged pistons its a bit mild, but it'll last longer. SpeedPro's should work fine for your application- though JE's or ARIAS are alway nice. You could run more compression, but there's really no need for it, your biggest concern is going to be traction. Running that low of a time in that car is less about power and more about getting the power to the ground without leaving your tire at the lines.

Edie 2925 for the intake.

Compression os your friend. Always. get as much as you can so you won't be running the street's.

The 383 will hook you up with good midrange torque and using the 6" piston will lighten the tensile load on the rods. Get a set of H-beams for the compression loads of NO2. Use a high end forged piston. It's a bit of money I know but they will last near forever in your application. Assuming you take care of the detonation.

You'll make the power. It's up to you to make the chassis work.
