You are going to need race gas just to operate a 13:1 motor, and no you won't be able to go forced induction on that kind of compression.

Race motors are miserable on the street.

It sounds like you want to spend a bunch of money, but have no idea what to buy and are trying to get in over your head.
Honestly, I would suggest you buy a finished race car instead of trying to build one.
