    do a vindicator cam - http://www.vengeancerd.com/ - oil pump etc etc
    i would think that would get you there - is your car an auto or m6? auto you will need a big stall

    "close to 400" really doesnt mean much in an auto cause the stall and gears will throw off teh dyno reading tremendously. you can get a decent cam only car with a stall and gears and it'll only put up 320rwhp but run 11's at the track. to see "400rwhp" on a dyno with a stall and gears your gonna need heads and all which will definetly not be budget.
    a nice shot of spray would get you there no problem..

    Untill you can afford a nice H/C set-up, i would just spray. I was in your shoes a couple of years ago (young, not really much money to spend on ur car) I just put together a list of the stuff i bought, it was about 18k and i was at 397wrhp. now i had alot of other stuff done like suspension, stereo, ect. but looking back i wish i would have just done nitrous. Now i just blew my H/C motor and am doing a LQ9 408, its like a sickness once you start you just cant stop.

    so with N20, you will have a fast car when you want it but on the other hand you still have your DD and wont have to worry about bad gas mileage. just my .02

    Good Luck

    Looking for an LSX car.

    A good tune and a semi big cam should net you 400hp with out touching the heads.

    I need to dyno but my car with a AZPS03 Cam tuned with a set of LT's should be around 400hp at the wheels...
