    Everything listed so far will increase those numbers . If an auto, a nice high stall converter will help.

    4-500 at the flywheel will be pretty easy to attain. Just need money.

    you said 97 ls1,in model year 1997 ls1 engines were only in corvette,98-02 in f-body.there are some 500 hp threads i had one a year or so ago. 400 is fairly easy to obtain, ls1 with afr heads,scoggin-dickey z+221 cam,fast intake,long tube headers is one combo that will make over 400 rwhp.how do i reach 500 hp?
