To hold the cabinets up there are no studs at all so i was gonna pre-drill the cabinet then drill into the block and fasten the tapcon

Tapcons will work---It would be better to open the drywall and put in a nailer but the Tapcons you described will work---They are not the best with cinder block so plan on a few that won't grab.
