It depends on how much money's been spent modding them and what you consider fast.

NA bolt ons only: high 12s
NA bolt ons + cams: mid 12s
NA bolt ons + heads/cams: low 12s
NA bolt ons + HCI: high 11s
NA bolt ons + HCI + stroker: mid 11s
Forced induction 450rwhp: mid 11s
Forced induction 550rwhp: high 10s
Forced induction, built engine, 700rwhp: high 9s

I think a 3V is still a pretty good starting point for an 11 second "do-it-all" build if that's fast enough for you. I have roughly $20k Can. (around $15k US at current exchange rates) into mine including what I originally paid for a stock 43k mile car 9 years ago. I'm not sure there's another car I could have done that with. Of course, I'm now at the limit of a lot of stock components and going any quicker would get expensive.

my 3v is pretty quick compared to stock making about 510rwhp but doesn't feel like it is much faster or faster than my 14 gt with fbo

Let off at the 1/8th in all 3 passes, put a parachute on the car so I can run the 1/4 this year.
