Turbo is the way to go if you want to hit that mark. Also save some money to the side for when the tranny goes (if it’s high mileage), big brake kit, suspension (if you don’t have any you will need it) also exhaust it’s needed to maximize horsepower. You may want to do a leak down and compression test just it case because as soon as you are at full boost and you have a compression issue say goodbye to the motor

From my experiences, you assume the worst and hope for the best ;)

i would just get a tt stage 2 setup and be happy with 430whp for $8g's...way less headache than a custom setup that is going to make 500whp. with the tt kit you could upgrade to a gt35r and water/methanol injection and probably make 500whp...
