I think u need to focus on getting your car first to be honest plus look at the threads there were decisions about this though my advice is once you get the car that's the time to ask these kind of questions

Its possible. You just need the whole top end and probably the ECU

It takes a lot of money and is really worthless unless you are gonna go full speed on the build. Heads, intake, blower. Simply swapping on b heads with a cobra intake will drop your compression leaving u about 1500 bucks in the hole with a minimal gain. Buying a used eaton will get you closer to your goals with a high revving 4 valve motor but would set you back another 500+.. To top all that off you would also need a forged rotating assembly to get around that 400+rwhp mark safely
