That shouldn't be a problem with adequate traction.

Rear wheel HP or crank?

380 at the crank will get you low-mid 13's. 380 at the wheels will drop you down into the bottom 12.0's.

All this depends on the weight, traction and how well the combination is sorted.

going fast costs money, 400 at the crank and 380 at the wheels??? thats what, 5% drivetrain loss? a little optimistic if you ask me. As for what ELSE can be done to add power? what HAS been done, give us more information and it'll help us figure out what else you can do

You can google for quarter mile and horsepower calculators, dont know how accurate they are though. enter weight, hp etc and it calculates ets

It's not that hard to get 400hp from a 350cid now-a-days but it does take the right heads and cam. What heads and cam are you using?

I am very near 375-400 hp in my car as well, I am hoping for mid-high 13's. I think it is quite feasible.
