Default Engine Build, 400whp

Alright so now that I'm almost finished with my turbo I'm thinking into the future a little bit (this summer). I want to buy a new y8 and build it up and then swap it when the time comes. So my question is what brand and what type of components will I need to achieve 400whp? Right off the bat I know I want to get it sleeved, new pistons, h-beam rods, and new valves/springs, and a cam. I will also be upgrading my fuel pump, possibly the lines if needed, Fuel pressure regulator, and new injectors.I plan on making this a turbo'd engine with my 14b.another question, will my 14bbe enough for 400whp?

Mods already have:
Full cat backexhaust
14b, jrc intercooler, 310 rc injecors
hallman es bc, custom ic pipes
greddy bov, hondata s300
plx300 wideband, boost gauge, oil temp gague
Suspension kit, not sure what brand, it was installed when I bought the car.

Plan to get before build:
New clutch, possibly new flywheel
LSD Locker(if money allows, and I gain the knowledge needed)

I know this is a very rough idea and thats all I really expect right now, just trying to gain some insight and hopefully learn what I need to by the time I want to build it.

Vitara pistons lower the compression to 8.5:1, Eagle rods, ARP Headstuds, Cometic headgasket, RC injectors, thatd probably too much power for DSM blue tops, i've heard Exedy clutch and flywheel do the job, Stage 2 or 3 would probably be okay for you

Alright Great.. thanks a lot flip. That'll give me a place to start researching anyways. Would a stock head gasket be ok if I replaced it? The reason I ask is because I just purchased ARP headstuds and a stock gasket. lol

I was leaning twards the exedy clutch as to a few others. How about the crank, will a stock crank be tough enough, or should I buy an aftermarket? I have no clue, never built a 4cylinder before.

Great, and now that I've researched a little I think I'm gonna go with an ACT clutch and flywheel. Thanks for the help.

If anyone has any comments, feel free to post them.

the stock honda crank is just fine, just have it spun balanced and polished and thats all you need
