Jim, a 396/402 with the cam (Ultradyne 280/288 Hydraulic ground on a 110LSA) that I recommended for BB_Mike combined with a turbo 400, the right converter (ATI 10" 408360) and 3.73 gears is good for mid to low 12's in a typical street/strip chevelle weighing upwards of 4000 lbs. Of course there is more to it than just a cam swap, like using the right heads and having them prepared properly but it's still a VERY streeatable, drive anywhere combo that isn't to expensive to build. In addition the heads, intake, carb, headers and converter can be used if you ever step up to a 454 or 502 based combo. Just some thoughts.
