Depends on your budget. A Little M block and 434 with decent aluminum heads could do it and be durable.

"Dunning-Kruger Effect"
-a type of Cognitive bias where people with little expertise or ability assume they have superior expertise or ability. This overestimation occurs as a result of the fact that they do not have enough knowledge to know they don't have enough knowledge.

Before you argue with someone ask yourself, "Is this person mentally mature enough to grasp the concept of a different perspective?" If not there is no point to argue.

Surely an 010 block, white box aluminum heads and a flat tappet solid cam will go 11's in a Chevy II.

I'll be the guy to say it (and I'm sure some people are tired of hearing it) but literally a bone stock 5.3L LM7 with a cam and a dual plane intake (or even a single plane) and a carburetor can easily do what you are wanting. You need about 400-450hp to go 11.99 at 3500 lbs and this can be easily achieved with the gen 3/4 small blocks. You can even get a little fancy with brackets to hide the coil packs and then some normal looking valve covers, simply run the MSD 6014 ignition box and call it a day. This would be the best reliable, streetable and raceable combination for you.
