I would say a nice 331/347 forged rotating assembly, afr 185 heads, Ed Curtis custom cam, and matching intake. You'll definitely need a custom tune to help the computer cope with the new mods, so don't forget to add that to the bill.

i think building a NA 440rwhp motor is going to be tough if you want to keep it streetable if you add a supercharger to the mix you would be able to keep the rpm's down and the cam smaller and therefore a streetable package

I agree somewhat with teal, but it can be done. Just remember a high HP N/A motor will have bad street manners. It just depends on what your girl is willing to put up with and what you consider "streetable." As for my choices, go with a good set of aluminum heads, a dual pattern camshaft with more exhaust duration and lift in the .520-.530 range, and a quality intake like trick flow or bbk. You will need a large throttle body and MAF (as well as a custom tune as mentioned above). Stroking is definitely the way to go as well. You may consider doing a turbo set up. That way you can do a mild build up (or even a stock rebuild) and still lay down the power you are looking for. It would be about the same price when it is all said and done, maybe slightly more depending on the system you chose. Check out hellion systems, they are pretty reasonable and put down good power. Good luck.
