My current plans for a ~350-380hp 289 uses a Comp Magnum 282 solid lifter cam. But you'll have to match it with a big intake like a Performer RPM, and stock heads won't cut it, you'll need at least World Products Windsor JRs to get even close to 400hp. Bigger (but pricier) heads like Edelbrock RPM, Trick Flow, Brodix, etc. will get you closer to 400hp.

You dont have to stroke to get 400HP but it helps. I am neering 400HP with my 5.0 at the flywheel, havent dynoed yet but most HP calculators put me right around 320 at the rear tires.
