I think you'd be lucky to see 350-380 rwhp after cams, ported intake, head work (though the c heads are just fine imo), and all the usual bolt ons.

It'd be much easier and cheaper to run a low boost centri application and some 4.10's for a solid 400+ street car.

Do some digging on the registry or SVT performance, majority of guys looking for 400rwhp are opting for FI of some type. A couple guys have gone the n/a route but I believe they spent more to achieve a naturally aspirated 400hp than the guys going FI and seeing 500hp with some coin left for suspension etc.

A roots or twin screw will work, but keep in mind you won't want to run a ton of boost on stock internals or you'll be on borrowed time. The rods are the weak element in our N/A 4v's.

There are quite a few guys running Eaton M112's from the Termi's on stock internals but most are no higher than 10lbs, which is preferable since the more boost, the more heat that thing generates, it isn't call the "heaton" for nothing lol.

Also if you run a positive displacement blower and want to keep the shaker, you'll have to either fab up a mounting bracket over the blower or get creative and attach it to the hood. The second option won't keep the shaker "functional" but at least it will still be there like it should on a Mach.
