It's a really good idea to pull the TGVs especially if you plan on swapping cams.. As for now, let’s just focus on the block.. It's all you realistically have the cash for.. The Cobb "tuner" or "Pro" series Block would support your goal as that's basically what I have.. I would however like to see you upgrade the Rods as well at this time.. I regret not doing mine.. However on a half empty/half full ideal I think I'm going to have to pull my motor VERY soon to fix a (suspected) busted up piston ring so I might throw some rods in there as well..
The "Cobb Tuner Series 1" block is almost identical to mine, I have a Subaru STI short block with CP Pistons but both are forged pistons @ 8.5:1 and STI Rods and Crank.. It will hold your goal of 400whp.. I was told mine is good to 600whp on C16 or with Meth injection (my next purchase).. But I'm on a GT35R so you can easily run your GT30R at 24 Psi as I run my GT35R at that.. I hit about 9 grand over revving when my clutch let lose at my last drag event and I assume that is the cause of the busted up ring... Anyway..
Moving on.. I have Kelford Cams in mine.. I went with fully worked over heads and you might as well hold off on the cams until you can do your heads.. This will net you "steps" of power increase allowing you to get used to each increase and slowly build up to your goal.. This is a good way to go for several reasons..
1) I'm already used to mine and it feels slow to me..
2) Jumping from 165whp to 400whp just isn't a good idea.. LOL..
I would spend your 5000 like this..
Block Stage 1 or 2 even..
Walbro Fuel Pump
Aeromotive Adjustable Fuel Pressure Regulator
(This will make you need new fuel lines to the rails. Even for aftermarket rails)
800cc – 1000cc injectors (plenty good for your goal) I have 1200ccs..
Gauges – Very important to monitor things.. Best to start this early.
AP Protune.. You will need to tune for the injectors even on the same CI block and
The rest I would set aside for the next “Step” and do all that at one time as well..
