maybe one of the mods can change your title for you? being lost has nothing to do with what you want?

to get into the 10s with a 3600 pound car you will need 700 HP. I dont think a 383 will be the answer with out a turbo or super charger.probably 20,k away from engine/trans and hardware.
easiest way would be a N.A. 540

first;
how much drag racing experience do you have?
how well is this car set up? ie suspension/tires
that 355 car you saw? what was done to that car,is your car as good as that car and what did that other car weigh?
You can go fast with a 383,just need the right combination

you have to detail what you have

Guys don't normally jump into drag racing and go 10's right away.

I strongly suggest that you put the motor into the car and take it to the track the way it is. Once you have some time slips and are able to weigh the car with you in it, you will have a better idea of what to do to go faster.

A freshen is never a bad idea, but did it need that? Some tests would have given you an idea, but that's a moot point now. You should learn as much as you can and be able to do rebuilds yourself, machine work aside. It'll come to you, just don't set the bar to high starting out.

Sounds like inexperience talking here. How was the oil pressure in the jewel your uncle gave you?
Oh, You didn't even run it did you...

What told you that? With no experience, it would have been fine...

But it's your money to waste...
