Default 350-400 hp Is It Possible?

Ok guys here is my situation. I have a 2001 Honda Civic Lx 2 Door 5 spd. I am really beefing up the engine anyway I can. But heres the thing. I am not able to do a engine swap. 350 hp is it possible on the stock engine. Tell me what I would have to do to get to it. Money is not a concern for this discussion I just want to know if its possible. Thanks

with money not being an issue im sure you could get there. but it would be easier and cheaper to swap in a k series and go after that goal. im curious though as to why a swap will not be considered?

so what are some of the things that I can do. Main reason I am not doing a engine swap is because I am not allowed to get one and dont have the equipment to perform one.

turbo and a healthy shot of n2o. dont expect it to last if u want to do it on a stock engine.

if money is no object then i would get some pistons/rods a pretty good sized turbo and some nitrious and that will probably get you in the 350hp range on like 18-22psi with like a 75 shot of n20

i would stay away from nitrous. inless its for your intercooler. and just go with a good turbo set up on super amounts of boost.

its not posibble on a stock engine. You're gonna have to beef up all your internals and run a good amount of boost. I would say between 15-25 depending on your cr. There's many other factors as well, well good luck. But like any other person would say, a sawp would be much easier. But yeah that sux that your not allowed to get one.

It's gonna cost you nearly $10k to get 350-400 hp outta that engine. Full engine internals, fuel system upgrade (including return fuel line), Top end work(valvetrain and pnp), you'll need an EMS and one hell of a tune. Prolly a couple things I"m forgetting...
