Easily - if done properly.

Easily - if not done properly. The 'typical' 331 with 18 psig will generally make more power than you'd need for 10.50s in a 2800-pounder, and would also exceed the stock block's limits. You should be able to run less boost to hit your ET goal, and not break the block. Don't try to use power to make-up for an un-tuned chassis, mis-matched parts, or driving technique. It rarely works well and tends to break parts.
