Bored... random car questions...

K, so i have a 327 for my chevelle, what's the best way to get 400-500+ hp with best sound?? not too much for turbos, but i love the look of the blowers that come out of the hood... would a cam and one of those do it?

It won't be cheap.

Horsepower is money, how fast do you want to go?

That's funny, but sad because in my mom's tracker with all 90hp; I don't think it could reach 80mph

My mechanic has a 327 in his thirdgen firebird, his car is lighter but he runs 10s so anything is possible I guess.

lol, not quite looking for that much, but yeah, i figure 400-500 hp in a 3500 lb car should do the trick..
