There is no such thing as too much HP/Torque. It's all relative to what you are willing to live with.

As far as how much hp is enough or too much for a dd thats hard to say. I would say do heads/cam/exhaust/tune and you should be at your 400 mark. Or just throw some juice on it.
Not sure if you are looking for a fast dependable track car or just a fairly fast 400hp street car. The reason why I ask is because building a fast reliable track car is going to cost more than just modding ur car to be fast for the street.
Cheap, Fast, Reliable you can only pick two.
my current setup in parts alone was between 15 to 20K. Thats motor, intake, exhaust, transmision, driveshaft, suspension, wheels/tires, rearend, tune etc.
I'll tell you that when I was running 12.30's to 12.50's it only took me tires, stall, gears, and exhaust and that was it. I was also only making 316rwhp at the time. Then I slapped some n20 on it and ran consitent 11.50's.
