260hp+35hp for exhaust+15hp for CAI+15hp for TB/MAF+10hp for pullies+15hp for a plenum=350!!
If you are are a ricer add another 10-15hp for a grounding kit and then 5hp per sticker on the car.
In all seriousness though, a normal "bolt on" car with stock manifolds and a tune is going to put down between 250 and 260 to the wheels which is DAMN good for a 281CI motor with a circa 1997 top end. The 4V does even better with the same time period tech and its not exactly pricey to find an 03-05 Aviator motor to drop in and its REALLY cheap to go the Mark VIII route.
