Can $10K get you 450-500 N/A rwhp?

Goal: 450-500 rwhp

Now keep in mind, I live in Cali. So I have to keep it smog legal .

I'm choosing to go the head and cam route with any other upgrades that I might need (bigger injectors, adjustable fuel regulator, throttle body, etc... I'm not sure). And a good tune of course. Can 450-500 rwhp be achieved with 10K? Can the stock clutch handle that much power? I know there are supercharger kits that can get me there but I want to keep it naturally aspirated. I'm just a big fan of the "All motor" concept. And I'm definately staying away from nitrous.

Time frame: Between March and May.

Any suggestions will be appreciated

OK, you already have 400hp and that was stock, and based on your dyno pull, you have about 430 now. You honestly think you need $10,000 to get another 70hp? My brutha, for 10 large, you could be at 600hp! My STRONGEST suggestion is dependent on what direction you want to go. If you want heads and cam, give Cartek a call. If you want a blower, go with a ProCharger (does NOT use motor oil for lubrication). In both cases, your looking at maybe 5k, and with the leftover money, you can upgrade the clutch, halfshafts, output shafts, and driveshaft.

I met with a couple of local goat owners here in my neighborhood and one of them told me that the driveline components for the '05s were beefed up to handle the extra power from the LS2. Well, beefed up compared to the '04s. Does anyone know this to be true?
